Biography

Dr. Donald Mackenzie is a Lecturer in English Literature. He has co-edited Scott's  Fair Maid of Perth  for theEdinburgh Edition of the Waverley Novels. The  Edinburgh Edition  constitutes a groundbreaking enterprise in the study of Scott, going back to the first edition and the MSS to achieve a text closer to the author's original creative intentions than hitherto available.

He has written the articles on Donne, Hopkins, and T. S. Eliot for the  Oxford Dictionary of Christian Thought, and he has reviewed for Literature and Theology and RES, and currently does so for Translation and Literature. He edited Kipling's Puck books for the  World's Classics  and contributed a study of  The Metaphysical Poets  to the Macmillan Critics' Debate series.

His principal current research project is a study,  Myths of England, on Edwardian writers from Kipling to Lawrence, but with an interdisciplinary range and exploring contexts outside the specific Edwardian span. His research interests are: literature and theology; translation; the history of epic and romance as genres; myth and history.
