Linda Brigham is Assistant Professor of English at Kansas State University, Manhattan. Her essay "Prometheus Unbound and the Postmodern Politicial Dilemma," which appears in Shelley: Poet and Legislator, edited by Betty T. Bennett and Stuart Curran, is one of the most outstanding pieces in an excellent volume, a standard of excellence maintained in her recent essay on The Cenci, which can be found in Texas Studies in Language and Literature's special issue on "Romantic Drama." Her manuscript-in-progress, tentatively titled "Defying Gravity: Wordsworth, Shelley, and Structures of Individuation," articulates Lacanian psychoanalysis against the work of Deleuze and Guattari to explore distincutions between a Wordsworthian and Shelleyan approach to Romantic language.
