Daniel Lees’s background is in British Romantic poetry, as reflected in a recently published article on Shelley’s “Mont Blanc,” though his current teaching has centered on technical and scientific writing, particularly with graduate students in engineering disciplines. In addition, he also offers classes in beginning, intermediate, and advanced Latin.
