I've retired from Davidson, but still publish.

I studied Mandarin and classical Chinese at Stanford University (three summers) and in Taiwan and Beijing, where I taught on three sabbatical leaves. In addition to articles on English and American literature of the 19th  and 20th centuries, I published a book of translations of classical Chinese poetry and two books of my own poems and also articles and reviews in Norwegian literature and art. 

Recent publications include: Norwegian Dictionary and PhrasebookThe Private Journals of Edvard Munch; a ghost story in 13 Terrifying Tales from the North Carolina Piedmont.
