hi! i'm an english major and i love reading about your dissertation shenanigans. have you ever read nabokov's "the tragedy of mr morn"? it's really profound and illuminating (if you're into russian lit like me) but it's also reminiscent of shakespeare in every way imaginable... if you haven't read it i recommend it!

After hating Lolita with every fiber of my being I have deliberately avoided Nabokov but I will take this into consideration. (Glad to hear my constant bitching and moaning about my dissertation hasn’t put people off completely.)
