I have been teaching composition and literature at Idaho State University since 1996. I recently completed a 640-page manuscript titled "The Age of Delicacy: Sensibility, Imagination, and Taste in Eighteenth-Century Britain." My next project centers around the classical traditions of eighteenth-century British poetry.
