Greetings and welcome to Lady Anglophile!
From a very young age, I have had a fond appreciation for all things British. It began in the beautifully written pages of CS Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia and the masterfully depicted Lord of the Rings. Then grew and blossomed as I devoured the works of Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers, Dickens, Austen, the Bronte sisters, and of course the bard himself, Shakespeare. Soon I wasn’t just limiting myself to literature but consuming tv shows such as the old Doctor Who (eventually the newer ones), Foyle’s War, Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Victoria, the Crown, and TV adaptations of Christie and Sayers, and movies such as Disney’s Chronicles of Narnia, Pride and Prejudice, and even the BBC version of Narnia.
To say the least I had fallen in love with the rich history and culture of this small island nation across the pond.
Sadly, I have yet to actually physically visit England but I hope one day to visit. In the meantime, I will pour my love for it into the pages of this online website where you will find a wide range in topics.
The title of Anglophile sums me up pretty well but it is only one of the hats I wear. I am also an historian. I am a history/literature teacher by day and a writer by night (or whenever I can squeeze in some writing). So in addition to posts about all things British, you will also find ones on my writing and historical topics that I love (and maybe a few regarding the beloved country I call home: the United States).
I do hope you decide to stick around and explore with a beverage in hand. If I may, I highly suggest a good pot of Earl Grey. Though if you dont fancy that sort of thing (it’s not everyone’s cuppa), any beverage hot or cold would do.
