Engel at Work on New Publication
April 6, 2011
Humanities professor Bill Engel, author of five books on intellectual history and literary studies, has a new book at press about the debt that major figures of the American Renaissance, such as Melville and Poe, owe to medieval and baroque aesthetics. Oxford literary critic Emma Smith recently commented on Bill's latest work, Chiastic Designs in English Literature (2009): "Engel's critical vocabulary comes from Cassirer and Panofsky, and his aesthetic categories from Virgil, Ovid, and Aristotle." We all anxiously await Bill's latest project.
