Dr. Auge teaches courses in World Literature, Medieval and Renaissance British Literature, Eighteenth Century British Literature, Modern Irish Literature, and Modern Irish & British Poetry. He has published articles on a number of contemporary Irish poets, and his book, A Chastened Communion: Modern Irish Poetry and Catholicism, was published by Syracuse University Press in Fall 2013.
When not reading Irish poetry, Dr. Auge enjoys watching the Chicago White Sox and going for walks with his dog in the woods. After many years of teaching literature, Dr. Auge still finds that it elicits a more intense form of critical thinking than any other discipline.
