What Author/Poet Are You?

The lovely and quick-witted Georgiana over at her blog had this cool quiz and of course, I had to do it! (Never leave school...) Geogiana was Shakespeare (so cool!) but I was mostly the masculine Ernest Hemingway (75%.) Go figure. My favorite work he wrote was The Old Man and the Sea. I mostly liked his furniture and the island setting where he wrote. Well, this quiz didn't have any female authors/poets, so it was one-sided. Check out my stats and see who you are. Then, come back and tell me your leanings.






Which famous author/poet are you?
You scored as a Ernest Hemingway

You are most like Ernest Hemingway, one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. Hemingway was a soldier and sportsman, who fought in many foreign wars and hunted big game in Africa. He’s famous for writing about very manly men, who always got the girl and always saved the day. He killed himself in 1961. His most loved works include Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Sun Also Rises.

I was amazed at all the Shakespeares out there! Hope some of the rest of you try this out and report back as to what you are.

It's fun! Yes, Georgiana is lovely and quick-witted.

With all my answers, I was beginning to think I might short-circuit my computer! But I loved my answers:

You scored as a William Shakespeare
You are most like William Shakespeare, considered to be the greatest writer in English. Mystery surrounds his life, but scholars know he had a wife and family, who was not around much because he was in London writing and directing plays at the famous Globe Theater, where he produced plays that everyone of any background could enjoy. His sonnets show his mastery of style. His plays show his insight into human nature, as he has created some of the greatest characters in all of literature. His works are too many to list, but some include "Hamlet," "MacBeth" and "Twelfth Night."
