Course Leader Bio
I am a retired professor of humanities and have taught graduate and undergraduate courses in American, World, and Comparative Literatures. My undergraduate majors were English and German language and literature, with minors in Philosophy and History. My graduate studies include English and American Literature, 19th Century and Contemporary German Literature, American Studies, and German Americana. Poetry is filled with wonder and joy for me; I hope with this course to make it more accessible to others.
