His “Mary St. John” publication is included in the online recovery project “Irish Women Poets of the Romantic Period,” published by Alexander Street Press, 2008 ( Stephen Behrendt is the general editor of the series.

Cass will teach Hamilton’s Translations in English 405 (English Novel to 1800) during the spring 2009 semester. He previously instructed students about Maria Edgeworth's “Belinda” in English 475 (Romantic Movement) and English 406 (19th Century English Novel).
