I'm a professor of English at Vaughn College, with a BA in English and Drama (Minors in Sociology and Secondary Education) and an MFA in writing from Columbia University. My experience with both academia and the creative world allows me to craft, edit, and revise compositions to be both engaging and clear. I'm the person you want editing, proofing, or ghostwriting for you, because I work hard, I write well, and I care deeply and personally about the quality of writing I produce

No Tongue to Talk Nor Hands to Wash: The Violence of Speech in Revenge Tragedy

I wrote this dissertation on revenge tragedy's warping of speech through an observation of three texts in critical context- Middleton's "The Revenger's Tragedy", Shakespeare's "Titus Andronicus" and Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2". Through an observation of both the Early Modern and the PostModern revenge tragedy, I was able to conclude that speech is ultimately more important than the depicted violence on stage/screen.
