Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel


Part 21:
My First University:
English required that a lot of time be spent writing essays, which I diligently wrote every week. A selection of half a dozen or so essays of the previous week would be reviewed by the professor. Mine was always included. I was naive enough to think that this was because I was very good at English. In actual fact, of course, I was some five years older than most of the other students and hence my perspective on Milton and Shakespeare was much more mature.
