Focal interests are the relationship of form to ideology and the history of forms and ideas. I work on all major literary genres and also on the German philosophical tradition. A growing area of study is musical form in comparison with literary expression. I also have written essays on major theorists and general essays about criticism and literary history. I intend to return to work on a book mostly about 19th-century European fiction to be called "Fiction and Form."
