He completed his graduate work at the University of Texas, Austin, and teaches courses in 20th century British, Irish and Anglophone literature. He is author of numerous studies of modern authors, particularly T.S. Eliot and W.B. Yeats. His book, Eliot's Dark Angel (Oxford University Press, 1999), won the Robert Penn Warren/Cleanth Brooks Award for Outstanding Literary Criticism and the Annual SAMLA Studies Award for the best book published by a member of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association. He is the editor of T.S. Eliot's Clark and Turnbull Lectures, The Varieties of Metaphysical Poetry (Faber & Faber, 1993; Harcourt, Brace, 1994; Harvest, 1996), and co-editor with John Kelly of The Collected Letters of W.B.

During the 2000-2001 academic year, he was a Visiting Fellow at Trinity College, Dublin, and a Senior Research Fellow at Queen's University, Belfast.

In addition to serving on the editorial boards of Yeats Annual, The Recorder: Journal of the American Irish Historical Society and Texas Studies in Literature and Language, he is a member of the advisory boards of The Correspondence of Samuel Beckett and the W.B. Yeats Drama Foundation. His research has been supported by American Council of Learned Societies and National Endowment for the Humanities grants; and in addition to serving as a Fulbright Senior Lecturer in Greece, he has been a Visiting Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford, and twice a Research Fellow at the Institute of English Studies, University of London.
