Hello and Welcome to Live, Love, Read!

My name is Claire Ellam.

I am an avid reader and lover of all things literary. I have eclectic tastes and am passionate about many different literary modesĀ and genres; inclusive of everything from Poetry and Shakespeare, to the Gothic and (sigh) Chick Lit.

I’m currently sitting my Masters Degree, in English Studies, at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Throughout this blog I aim to explore some of the interesting texts that I have come across, as an undergrad and postgrad student, and assess the ways in which these texts comment upon societal issues.

This is my first blog, so please forgive my mistakes, there are bound to be more than a few!

That’s all I can think of for now . . . Thank you for reading and please don’t hesitate to comment or email.

Best wishes,
