Some biography

Appreciation for the cultural productions of Ireland and the American South led to my PhD dissertation and first book, The Aristocracy of Art, on the autobiographical fictions of James Joyce and Thomas Wolfe. A family involvement in the occult work of W. B. Yeats and an investment in feminisms led to my second book, Wisdom of Two, on the collaboration between Yeats and his wife George (Hyde Lees). As an editor, I have worked on scholarly editions of Yeats’s “Vision” Papers and the two versions of Yeats’s A Vision (1925 and 1937). I have particular interests also in contemporary poetry, the literature of the American South, women’s writing, and African American literature.
