Ohio State’s English faculty are all teacher-scholars. Some have published novels, short stories, poems or creative essays; others have edited texts from Old English poems to Shakespeare’s plays to nineteenth-century poems and novels; still others have written books and/or articles on folklore, rhetoric, composition and literacy, literary theory and criticism that circulate nationally and internationally; while others have published textbooks that have become classics in their fields. Whether in the classroom or advising theses and dissertations, our English faculty speak from deep expertise.
