    William Snyder has been a professor of English at Saint Vincent since 1977. His 1984 dissertation was cross-disciplinary, exploring the affinities of nineteenth-century painting to the poetry of William Wordsworth. In the intervening decades, he has taught a mix of composition and literature courses while writing articles, reviewing books, and presenting on panels investigating issues related to composition as well as the relation of visual art to verbal art.
