Engel at Work on New Publication

April 6, 2011

Professor Engel

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.
