Peter Schakel of English Faculty
Co-Edits Collection of Essays

Posted December 3, 2001

HOLLAND -- Dr. Peter J. Schakel of the Hope College English faculty is co-editor of a recently published collection of scholarly essays.

"Eighteenth-Century Contexts: Historical Inquiries in Honor of Phillip Harth," published by the University of Wisconsin Press, was edited by Schakel and Howard D. Weinbrot and Stephen E. Karian, the latter two both of the University of Wisconsin.

The volume is a collection of 15 essays that consider literary, intellectual, political, theological and cultural aspects of the years 1650-1800, in the British isles and Europe. They were written by colleagues, friends, and former students of Phillip Harth, an internationally respected scholar of Restoration and 18th-century British literature, and professor at the University of Wisconsin- Madison for three decades until his retirement in 1996.

Schakel is the Peter C. and Emajean Cook Professor of English and chair of the department of English at Hope. He joined the Hope faculty in 1969 after a year at the University of Nebraska.

He is a graduate of Central College in Iowa and holds graduate degrees from Southern Illinois University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he studied under Professor Harth. The collection includes an essay by Schakel titled "Swift's Voices: Innovation and Complication in the Poems Written at Market Hill."
