A native Iowan and literary scholar of the English Renaissance (Ph.D. Saint Louis University), Sean Benson is the author of over a dozen articles and three previous books on Shakespeare’s plays. He holds an endowed professorship, the Frank W. Mayborn Chair of Arts and Sciences, at The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
In his free time, Sean enjoys being outdoors, gardening, listening to live music, watching soccer, old movies (Cary Grant and Irene Dunne are two favorites), and reading widely in history, philosophy, religion, and literature. A fan of the nineteenth-century novel, he is also keen on the Jeeves and Wooster novels of P. G. Wodehouse. Sean and his wife, Jennifer, recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, and are the parents of two almost-grown children.
