Philip Roth Quote

 

“The question to ask about the writer isn’t ‘Why does he behave so badly?’ but ‘What does he gain by wearing this mask?’”

- Philip Roth

My name is Nick, and I am a student at the University of Pennsylvania. I am an as-of-yet undeclared English major, but for all intents and purposes that is what I study. I have been an avid reader since the second grade, and am an amateur writer (mostly of poetry, and I'm slowly but surely breaking out into prose writing.) I have several literary heroes, all of whom are writers of literary criticism. As such, writing criticism for me is both a way to appreciate art in and of itself, as well as pay homage to a wonderful tradition of free-thinking, analytic creativity.
