"Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. Books make sense of life.

--Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

 

"Curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect."

-- Samuel Johnson, The Rambler

People at Laurier

Markus Poetzsch, English Markus Poetzsch teaches British Romantic literature in the Department of English and Film Studies. His research interests include eighteenth and nineteenth-century aesthetics, theories of the everyday, ecocriticism and travel writing. He is currently engaged in a book-length study of the art and practice of walking, a project that alleviates at least in part the pangs of academic sedentariness!
