About

Professor of English, philologist, Philhellene, Master Scuba Diver, bicycle tourist, amateur thespian and Savoyard. As an ’umble teacher of composition, I make my poor living being a bit more prescriptivist than some of the gentlemen of leisure who can afford to be purer scientists and scholars (“scholar” from the Greek σχολή, leisure).
