I taught in the Program of Liberal Studies for 28 years, from 1991 to 2019, and was chair of the Program from 2004 to 2007. I feel extraordinarily fortunate to have had such wonderful students and colleagues. I am essentially a poet but I also am involved in verse-translation and do scholarly work on the history of English poetry. I am currently writing poetry and working on a translation of the sixteenth-century French poet, Pierre de Ronsard (a project for which I received an NEA). My translation of Nerval's sonnet sequence THE CHIMERAS appeared in 2019, and a new collection of my poems, AS THE CROW FLIES, is forthcoming. I also have essays on Keats, Milton, and postmodern religious poetry forthcoming.
