"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

Background Information

My name is John Ryan and I am a final year student in New Media and English at the University of Limerick, Ireland. I began writing academically at the age of fourteen, writing music and film reviews for a local magazine. Commencing a bachelor of arts degree in 2006, I directed my attention  particularly towards cultural theory and textual analysis, developing an avid interest in the works of the modernist age as well as the classical gothic form. In short, I have undertaken studies of a number of authors including Joseph Conrad, Virginia Woolf, Ambrose Bierce, E.A Poe, and James Joyce. Upon completion of my degree next May, I hope to hone my writing skills by undertaking a masters in Literature.

Additional Information

I am currently writing a dissertation on the works of the American Gothic genre.
