Eads Family Professor of English (2005 - 2010)
Professor Thomas Pfau is one of the major figures in English and German Romanticism in the United States today. His courses are challenging and intense. The demand level is high, but so is student motivation. Some may find him daunting, but they respond to his remarkable care–his manner is accessible and lucid. Professor Pfau not only engages students in his work; he engages them in their own thinking.
