Evidence That Buffy Summers is a Closet Lit Nerd
She referenced Waiting for Godot that one time.
In a season one episode, she has a crush on that guy who likes Emily Dickinson because he’s emo. He’s also the worst, and I can’t think of a single reason that Buffy would be attracted to him, other than the fact that they have a shared interest in literature.
In season four, she mentions William Burroughs, and when no one knows what she’s talking about, she gets all indignant that she’s the only one who did the reading.
She seems genuinely upset when she tells her lit professor that she has to drop out of college. She even tells him she really likes poetry, and that she wishes she had more time for it.
In general, Buffy is always super busy, so it makes sense that even though she really does likes literature, she can never find the time to read.
