A native of the fiftieth state, which I don’t visit as often as I should, I joined the Press in June of 1989 after receiving a BA from Harvard University and an MA from the University of Chicago. In addition to assisting the editorial director of acquisitions in humanities books, I also acquire books in medieval studies and poetry in translation, as well as manage two series, Phoenix Poets and The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe. A roving humanist by nature and profession, my recent acquisitions for the Press reflect my varied interests, including: Fragments and Assemblages: Forming Compilations of Medieval London, by Arthur Bahr; Dreams of Waking: An Anthology of Iberian Lyric Poetry, 1400-1700, edited by Vincent Barletta et al.; Milo De Angelis’s Theme of Farewell and After-Poems: A Bilingual Edition, edited and translated by Susan Stewart and Patrizio Ceccagnoli; Giovanni Della Casa’s Galateo; Or, The Rules of Polite Behavior, edited and translated by M. F. Rusnak; Bewilderment: New Poems and Translations, by David Ferry; Disposable Camera, by Janet Foxman; Martin Geck’s Richard Wagner: A Life in Music, translated by Stewart Spencer; Thresherphobe, by Mark Halliday; Practicing Literary Theory in the Middle Ages, by Eleanor Johnson; Arbitrary Rule: Slavery, Tyranny, and the Power of Life and Death, by Mary Nyquist; and The Figure of a Man Being Swallowed by a Fish, by Joshua Weiner.
