Joined 8 years ago from Horsham, West Sussex, England
I work for the Open University in the UK as an Associate Lecturer in Classics. I am also a registered and practising hypnotherapist in my home town of Horsham, West Sussex. I acquired all my qualifications after leaving school. I read Greek and Philosophy at the University of Reading and went on to do a PhD. My hobbies are karate (Wado Ryu), walking, running and cooking. My cultural interests are very wide ranging. I love all literature, from ancient to modern. I am very interested in music, especially Italian and French opera. I have loved Shakespeare and Wagner ever since I first encountered them. I am married with two daughters.

This hub is a brief study of Robert Browning's magnum opus The Ring and the Book. I end with some reflections about Browning as a poet and his place in English literature.
