Charles Altieri

Job title: 
Professor Emeritus; Former Rachael Anderson Stageberg Endowed Chair

He has been primarily interested in the varieties of 20th-century American poetry, especially concerning philosophy and the visual arts. He also recently wrote a book on the affects, and that shapes his thinking on most topics. But he is in transition. He as been teaching Shakespeare and Hegel and will teach the epic because he wants a grand stage on which to figure out what he can say about affect in literature. He is also working on a book introducing ways of thinking about modern American poetry.
