Associate Professor (Retired in December 2020)
My research interests include modern British poetry and contemporary literary theory. I am the author of a book on W.H. Auden's poetry as well as various articles that deal with Auden's prose, modern poetry and the romantic tradition, Gerard Manly Hopkins, Derrida from a phenomenological perspective, deconstruction, and the application of performative theory to literary texts. I have recently contributed to the Cambridge Companion to W.H. Auden and am working on a study of Irish poet Seamus Heaney.
My graduate teaching interests range over modern and contemporary British poetry, the rhetorical models of Kenneth Burke, critical formalism in its Russian, New Critical, and poststructuralist modes, cultural criticism, postMarxism, and semiotics. Besides these and other accomplishments, I regularly throw a tennis ball for a finicky golden retriever.
