Dennis Taylor is a Professor of English, author of books on Thomas Hardy, and now on Shakespeare and religious issues. His favorite course is The Literature of Spiritual Quest, which he has taught at Boston College for many years. He is currently editor of the journal, Religion and the Arts.
Taylor is the father of four children who, like him, have experienced various forms of success and failure.
His favorite hobbies are conversation and handball, though he very much likes those moments when "the house was quiet and the world was calm. The reader became the book..."
