About me and my blog

I am currently studying toward becoming a doctor of philosophy in literature at Lancaster university UK. My research looks at the influence of historical art movements on post-war, late modern literature, with particular interest in the works by J. G. Ballard, William Burroughs and Douglas Coupland. On my blog I write all manner of things which almost always centre around the theme of Surrealism. In past posts I’ve written shorter essays, haiku poems, film and book reviews, I’ve compiled artwork, famous philosophy/psychology/literary/art-world quotes, and the occasional flash fiction. Much love to anyone who can find the time to read any of my posts. Dec X
