Prof. D’Addario teaches and studies early modern British literature. His teaching interests include Shakespeare and early modern drama, Milton, sixteenth- and seventeenth-century poetry and prose, and transatlantic literature.
D’Addario is the author of Exile and Journey in Seventeenth-Century Literature (Cambridge University Press, 2007) and his essays have appeared in various journals, including ELH, Philological Quarterly, English Literary Renaissance, and The Huntington Library Quarterly. He is nearing completion of his second book, The Aesthetics of the Everyday in Early Modern London, which examines the interplay between the details of everyday life in the city of London, such as living spaces and social habits, and early modern literature. He also co-edited and contributed to a collection of essays, Text and Readers in the Age of Marvell, that will be released by Manchester University Press next year. Another essay, on life and literature in the midst of the English Civil War in London, is forthcoming in a collection of essays from Cambridge University Press.
“I have deeply appreciated the degree to which Gettysburg fosters an environment of exploration in the classroom,” said D’Addario. “As someone who teaches an older time period, the small classes and pedagogical freedoms allowed here, have aided me in encouraging students to inhabit Shakespeare’s world, to imagine living in an entirely different environment.”
