Favorite author, poet, composer: Austen, Eliot, Chopin

I have not read a ton of works of fiction. I don't get a chance to read as much poetry as I’d like. I rarely listen to music (surprising, as I enjoyed playing a lot of music in school).


I have derived much pleasure from the works of the following artists. I hope to delve more deeply into their works throughout my lifetime.
  • Favorite author: Jane Austen. Every time I read one of her books, I fall in love with the heroine.
  • Favorite poet: T.S. Eliot. The Waste Land. Four Quartets. Love it.
  • Favorite composer: Frédéric Chopin. Growing up, we had a Chopin cassette tape that I listened to over and over.

The highly reviewed 99 Most Essential Chopin Masterpieces (MP3s) can be downloaded from Amazon for six bucks (US residents only, alas).
