niko shefer has been a teacher and a student

Niko Shefer has been a teacher and a student of English Literature for many years over his career. After he first discovered William Shakespeare in grade school in South Africa, Shefer was hooked on the written word, poetry, and English Literature.

He continued his passionate study of the greatest British authors through his undergraduate years and after earning his Bachelor’s degree in English, he left his native country, Africa to continue his study of English Literature in the United States.

There he found many other students and teachers as passionate about the great English authors as he was. He learned as much from his peers as the professors while at New York University earning his Master’s degree there.

Niko Shefer, as a professor now at the University in South Africa, learns from his students and colleagues.

He sees his role as both a student and a teacher in this context, teaching others as much as he learns from others to form a dialogue and discussion about the great English writers so that everyone involved can learn a little about the place that these writers came from to help us learn a little bit more about our current situation and culture.

Shefer believes that the authors he has studied throughout his career still have things to say about the current state of literature and modern British culture.
