“The way I see it is, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain”
Hey, I’m Sonia! As you can tell from my site, I’m a literature fanatic. My intentions for this are to create a community for both writers and readers, and to share my own poetry with you guys. I also intend to review a range of literary works.
Where do I even begin? Everyone has that one subject that lets them escape this world. Something that gives them purpose. For me, that’s literature. Not only do I love reading poetry and books, but I feel accomplished when I write some of my own. Analysing and creating is a hobby for me, it’s what I do. It’s in my blood. In every part of my life, including education. I was built to create, and creativity is a talent I’m willing to share. Hence I’m doing an English Literature BA (Hons) Degree.
My favourite type of works would be from the 19th Century, like Dickens. But I also love Shakespeare! I can’t get enough of his works. In terms of poetry, my favourites would be from the Romantic period. Poets like Wordsworth and Keats speak out to me. Like on a spiritual level! Mainly because I have a big fascination with nature and the sublime. Talk about getting high on nature.
Literature is not the only subject I find passion in. I have a deep connection with astronomy. The findings of the universe, and how insignificant we are in the grand scale of things. On the other end of the spectrum, I have great interest in mythologies ranging from Greek, Norse, Roman, etc.
