WARP Final Draft - Robertson Davies
My WARP author is Robertson Davies. He was born in the year of 1913. At an early age he was introduced to literature and drama.
His nationality is Canadian, and he lived in the years of 1913 through 1995. His religion is unknown, but he is also an Englishman.
“He was born in Thamesville, Ontario. Growing up he was introduced to books, literature, and drama”. He married Brenda Mathews who he met at Oxford. When he returned to Canada in 1940 he became a literary editor for a magazine. Most of his novels began rolling out in the 1970s to 1990s.
He was influenced to write and make plays due to his interest in them starting in childhood. He also influenced by his father who was also a newspaper editor. His wife was also an influence for him to create plays because she was a play director. …show more content…
