Susan Wolfson is Professor of English at Princeton University and, with Ron Levao, edited the Harvard Annotated Frankenstein. She also edited, on her own, Frankenstein: A Longman Cultural Edition, and the Harvard Annotated Northanger Abbey. She has published widely in the field of Romantic-period studies. Her academic monographs include, most recently: Borderlines: The Shapings of Gender in British Romanticism (2007), Romantic Interactions (2010), Reading John Keats (2015), and forthcoming, Romantic Shades and Shadows. She has been the recipient of awards or grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Association of Literary Critics and Scholars, and the Andrew Mellon Foundation. She enjoys teaching in the “Long Romantic” period, and when her territorial colleagues are not looking, Shakespeare and Milton, too—as honorary Romantics.
