Dr. Patrick J. Quinn is Professor of Humanities and Literature at the Alliance of Civilizations Institute at Sultan Fatih Mehmet University in Istanbul. He received his PhD in English from the University of Warwick in 1988. His dissertation concerned the failure of British poets Richard Aldington, Siegfried Sassoon, and Robert Graves to write any significant poetry for a decade after the Great War.This dissertation led him to write and edit several books on British War Poets and followers of Modernism during the middle decades of the twentieth century. Quinn has also co-written a grammar text, co-edited an anthology of post colonial short stories, and written a study of the way in which propaganda literature helped bring the United States into the Great War in 1917. Recently he has been writing about the American femme fatale in literature from 1870 to 1920. Professor Quinn has taught literature courses throughout the world including the USA, Canada, Germany, England, Greece, Iraq, and now in Turkey. He is the general editor of the Carcanet Press 24 volume Robert Graves Programme which was begun in 1995 and completed after 17 years in 2012.
