Gary Handwerk works on modern European narrative and narrative theory, with particular interest in narrative ethics and the relation between political philosophy and fiction. His recent publications have focused on Romantic-era texts and include critical editions of William Godwin's Caleb Williams and Fleetwood (Broadview Press) and essays on several of Godwin's novels and on Rousseau's Emile. He is the translator and editor of Nietzsche's Human, All Too Human (Stanford University Press), and author of an article on Romantic irony in the Cambridge History of Literary Criticism. His latest interest is in literature and the environment; he teaches a UW course on this topic that is linked to local high school classes.
