Lousie Edna Goeden Professor of English
Graduate Director

Although for most of my professional career I have written about the work of Irish authors like James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, teaching at Marquette has allowed me to engage a much broader spectrum of authors, from the anonymous Beowulf poet to Salman Rushdie. I have also been able to teach courses on film, on gender, and on literature and theories of chaos/complexity. I think that my development as a critic has benefited greatly from the variety of courses that the department has encouraged me to offer, but even more significantly I have profited from the encouragement of my colleagues and the enthusiasm of my students. Their comments, their questions, and their energy have helped me refine my own thoughts about reading literature and put some of those ideas down on paper.
