I began studying French in middle school and have never stopped since. I am interested primarily in the literature and critical theory of the 19th and 20th centuries. More specifically, authors such as Charles Baudelaire, Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Nathalie Sarraute capture my attention and my interest. I am also interested in taking a philosophical approach to literature, especially with regard to philosophy of art and language and hermeneutics.
