Contributor Notes

Daniel Moss is an Associate Professor of English at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. His publications include The Ovidian Vogue: Literary Fashion and Imitative Practice in Late Elizabethan England (University of Toronto Press, 2014), as well as articles on Shakespeare’s sonnets, Chapman’s early verse, and the Despair episode in Spenser’s Faerie Queene. A more recent project addresses Shakespeare’s interaction with the Lord Chamberlain’s/ King’s Men, in particular his ongoing choreography of the company’s clown, leading man, and first boy. Moss also serves as Shakespeare’s ghost’s ghost-writer, and is working on two “lost” plays: The Fair Maid of Alexandria, a rollicking romance, and The Fall of Sarpedon, a surprisingly racy tragedy of Troy.
