Nikolai Endres received his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 2000. As an associate professor at Western Kentucky University, he teaches Great Books, British literature, classics, mythology, critical theory, film, and gay and lesbian studies. He has published on Plato, Ovid, Petronius, Gustave Flaubert, Walter Pater, Oscar Wilde, E. M. Forster, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mary Renault, Gore Vidal, Patricia Nell Warren, and others. He is currently working on pornographic representations of canonical gay texts and on a queer reading of the myth and music of Richard Wagner. His next project is a literary biography of American novelist Patricia Nell Warren, author of the famous gay novel The Front Runner.
