Who is David Lee Miller?

David Lee Miller is a noted scholar of English Renaissance Literature, currently Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of South Carolina at Columbia. His works include The Poem's Two Bodies: The Poetics of the 1590 Faerie Queen; Dreams of the Burning Child: Sacrificial Sons and the Father's Witness; three edited books; and about two dozen refereed articles that have appeared in scholarly journals such as Modern Language Quarterly, English Literary History, and Publications of the Modern Language Association. He is one of four general editors of The Collected Works of Edmund Spenser, a new scholarly edition under contract to Oxford University Press.

Miller's scholarly work has been especially devoted to the canon of Edmund Spenser, a contemporary of Shakespeare's whose Faerie Queene is considered one of the two or three greatest epic poems in the language. Spenser was the subject of The Poem's Two Bodies in 1988, and Miller is currently helping to prepare a new scholarly edition of the great English poet.
