Although I teach a wide variety of literature in my classes, I am primarily interested in 19th and 20th Century American Literature with an emphasis on Nathaniel Hawthorne Studies.  I also enjoy teaching Civil War Literature, which includes Walt Whitman, Emily Dickenson and Stephen Crane.  Other areas of expertise include the literary works of Willa Cather, Robert Frost and Sylvia Plath.
