Robert Knapp comes from Alamosa, Colorado. Educated at the University of Colorado, the University of Denver, and Cornell University, he taught for eight years at Princeton University, and considers himself very lucky to have begun teaching at Reed in 1974. A specialist in Shakespeare and early modern English drama, he also has a developed interest in literary theory. He has published journal articles on a variety of late medieval and early modern texts, and is the author of Shakespeare: The Theater and the Book (Princeton University Press, 1989).
