Here are my answers to the original questions:
- If you could meet anyone throughout history, who and why? Boy, that is hard. It reminds me of being asked “who” is my favorite author, which is impossible to answer…there are far too many. Honestly, because of his huge historical significance over the ages, I would first want to meet Jesus. Here are a few more: Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Geoffrey Chaucer, Aristotle, Diogenes, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Francis of Assisi, C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Lewis Carroll, to name a few. Why? Why not? It would be nice to pick their brains.
- What is your favorite book and why? There is absolutely no way on earth I can name my “favorite” book. That’s like asking me to choose a single star out of a constellation. Here are some all-time favorites: Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, The Nose (short story) Nikolai Gogol, William Shakespeare (all his Sonnets, As You Like It, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Midsummer Nights Dream,), The Divine Comedy by Dante, The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, Troilus and Criseyde’s by Geoffrey Chaucer, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Moments of Being by Virginia Woolf, The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, The Awakening by Kate Chopin, Ovid’s Metamorphism, The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup, The Barrett’s of Wimpole Street by Rudolf Besier, shall I continue? J
- Who is your favorite fiction character from any medium and why? Oh, I truly wish the word “favorite” were not in any of these questions. It really is impossible to answer this. Since I am such a Shakespeare fan, let’s look at Hamlet. There is no getting around the complexities and layers that make up this character. Simply put…he’s genius. Why? The layers that make up Hamlet are many. He’s fearless and fearful, brave and confused, indecisive and calculating, and hurt and angry, and he also has a lot of questions about life.
Here are my 3 original questions:
1.) What excites you about writing and reading?
2.) What is your definition of “education?” Do you believe being educated is important?
3.) If you could meet a fictional character, who would it be and what would you discuss?
…And now…here are my six nominees:
Dana Iste @ Southern Bell Goes AWAL
Dr. Robert O. Young @ PHoreverYoung
Chris Young @ The Renegade Press (Tales from the Mouth of a Wolf)
Cogito Ergo @ iSpocklogic
Christine Murray @ Poethead
Rami Unger @ Rami Unger, The Writer
Well, that’s about it! Thanks for the nomination, Rami Unger. I’ve (of course) nominated you back! :)
