That magic moment in third year undergraduate university when suddenly the words on the page suddenly became alive - that very day during the lecture on Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream when I suddenly realized that Shakespeare was writing about real people - people like me and everyone I ever knew - for the first time in my life I learned to read - truly read - what a world opened for me that day! What a blessings to have that professor come into my life! And I've been reading, reading and reading every since! And, by the way, I am now teaching Western literature in a college in a remote area of China. And, hopefully, teaching sons and daughters of peasant farmers to read - really read!
