A poet and scholar of 19th- and 20th-century literature, he has published eight books, including the co-edited collection “Precipice or Crossroads? Where America's Great Public Universities Stand and Where They Are Going Midway through Their Second Century.” He has also been chair of the Board of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities and President of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

Fogel, currently professor of English at Vermont, is a poet and scholar of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Henry James, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and others. He founded the Henry James Review and edited that journal from 1979 to 1995. He also served as executive director of the Henry James Society from 1979 to 1999. His books include “A Trick of Resilience,” “Henry James and the Structure of the Romantic Imagination,” “Covert Relations: Henry James, James Joyce, and Virginia Woolf,” and several edited volumes, including a volume in the Library of America comprising three of Henry James’s novels and “A Companion to Henry James Studies.”
