Hi there! My name is Lauren, and this blog is for my college course in British literature. I love reading and writing fiction, analyzing literature, and learning about outer space. I am majoring in French and English (with a concentration in creative writing). In the future, I hope to edit science fiction and fantasy books.
Through this website, I plan to explore the themes and cultures of British literature from the Victorian era onward. I am interested in the prevailing ideas of gender and race that drove societal norms during these times, as well as the impacts they have on the characters in each story.
Please feel free to leave comments on my posts—I’d love to interact with you! You are also welcome to message me through the “Contact” page. However, I ask that your feedback be kept relevant to literary analysis, and that you would also refrain from using rude or inappropriate language.
Thank you, and happy reading!

I have loved the stars too truly to be fearful of the night.”
