Mercer Island, WA. My residence in Turkey proved equally as formative as I learned to live on simit and Hegel.
BA in English with a minor in Philosophy (Seattle University)
MA in Renaissance and Romantic Literature (University of Liverpool)
Master in Teaching with English Endorsement (Western Washington University)
My unpublished poems for which I will decline a posthumous Nobel Prize in Literature.
The concept of artistic afterlife in which the work of a master influences subsequent artists. This afterlife occurs specifically in Botticelli's drawings of Dante's La Divina Comedia and generally in the broad influence of Milton on English Romanticism.
Novels? I prefer poetry and philosophy.
Each class excites me because I love learning and teaching. This said, I have some fantasy courses: Renaissance and Romanticism. Ovid and Art, Artistic Afterlives, The Comic Vision of Hogarth and Fielding, Revolution in Milton and Beethoven, and Neoplatonic Aesthetics.
