About Heather Dubrow

Heather Dubrow is the author of seven scholarly books, most recently Deixis in the Early Modern English Lyric: Unsettling Spatial Anchors Like "Here," "This," "Come" (Palgrave Pivot) and The Challenges of Orpheus: Lyric Poetry and Early Modern England (Johns Hopkins). Her other publications include a collection of her own poetry, Forms and Hollows (Cherry Grove Collections), a co-edited collection of essays, an edition of As You Like It, and articles on early modern literature,  teaching, and policies and challenges in higher education. Her current projects include a new collection of poems. Building bridges between critical approaches has long been one of her goals, and in particular she engages with what is sometimes termed New Formalism, which traces the interactions between form in its many senses and concerns of recent scholarship, such as material and historical analysis. Among Heather Dubrow's interdisciplinary interests is the relationship between the visual and literary arts. She is also the Director of the Poets Out Loud Reading Series at Fordham.
