His recent publications have focused on Romantic-era texts and include critical editions of William Godwin’s Caleb Williams and Fleetwood (Broadview Press), as well as essays on several of Godwin novels and on Rousseau’s Emile. He is the translator and editor of Nietzsche’s Human, All Too Human (Stanford University Press: Volume 1, 1996; Volume II, 2012), and author of an article on Romantic irony in the Cambridge History of Literary Criticism.
