About me


I’m an academic by trade, and it’s only lately that I’ve spent more time on my own poetry. I teach English Romantic poetry at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, where I also chair the Department of English. My book of criticism, Blake and the City, is available from Bucknell University Press. My current critical project is called Poetry at the Edge of Silence. My husband is an Episcopal priest, and we have an eleven-year-old son.
