Edmund Miller, Senior Professor of English at LIU–Post and former long-term Department Chair, is most renowned for The Go Go Boy Sonnets but has published a dozen other poetry books and chapbooks. In addition, three of his plays are in verse: The Greeks Have a Word (a reconstructed satyr play), Loving Cuckold (in heroic couplets), and Royal Favorite; or, Regime Change (in blank verse). His short fiction is collected as Night Times. Miller also writes extensively about British literature and is the acknowledged authority on Lewis Carroll’s Sylvie and Bruno books while his Drudgerie Divine: The Rhetoric of God and Man in George Herbert is the most comprehensive study of that author.
