James Heffernan

James Heffernan, Professor Emeritus of English at Dartmouth College, has lectured extensively on James Joyce, particularly Ulysses, which he has covered in 24 lectures for the Teaching Company. His many articles include a close study of Molly’s monologue, and his books include studies of English Romantic poetry and landscape painting,  interart relations, “ekphrastic” poetry from Homer to John Ashbery, and — most recently — Hospitality and Treachery in Western Literature, published by Yale in 2014.  He is now nearing completion of a book on politics and literature at the dawn of World War II.
