Nora F. Crow earned an A.B. from Stanford in English and classics and an A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard University. She specializes in 18th–century British literature, especially Swift and the history and theory of satire. If you take a course with Professor Crow, she assures you that you will spend much of the time laughing.
Professor Crow has published two books: a monograph entitled The Poet Swift and a critical anthology of Gothic literature called The Evil Image, co–edited with Professor Patricia Skarda. She has published many articles on Swift as well as articles on the history of psychoanalysis. Her publications in the field of literature and medicine include a study of the American woman poet H. D. and her analysis with Freud.
Professor Crow really prefers, however, the joy of the sprint to the loneliness of the long–distance writer. Therefore she is currently engaged in writing numerous reviews for the 18th–century journal The Scriblerian and other scholarly publications.
