Dr. Dobkins and I went out for lunch today to discuss my papers. She met me after class and was in such a hurry to get to the “surprise” she planned for before lunch. We rushed up to the Trinity College gates, nearly ran through the entrance garden, and finally arrived at the Wren Library!
The Wren Library houses some of England’s most prized manuscripts. I was able to see the first collection of Shakespeare’s plays, Isaac Newton’s hand-written notes and his first textbook, and the original Winnie the Pooh series. It truly gave me chills to read some of the notes from the world’s most notable scholars.
