The Richard Ellmann Lectures in Modern Literature, now among the most prominent in North America, were established in honor of Richard Ellmann (1918-1987), who served Emory University as the first Robert W. Woodruff Professor from 1980 to 1987. For more than forty years, his writing set the highest standards of critical inquiry and humanistic scholarship. The biographer of James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, Professor Ellmann enjoyed eminent domain among the interpreters of W.B. Yeats, Samuel Beckett, Henry James, T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, and other modern authors. His public lectures were unparalleled in their appeal to a worldwide audience of readers, for Professor Ellmann always spoke in a language that invited the reader to share his or her personal engagement with serious literature.
