Jerome Beaty, professor of Victorian literature at Emory for more than 40 years, passed away, Jan. 30 after a fight with cancer. He was 75.
Beaty wrote several books, including Misreading Jane Eyre and Middlemarch: From Notebook to Novel.
He edited The Norton Introduction to the Short Novel and co-edited The Norton Introduction to Fiction, both of which began as products of Emory.
Beaty also co-authored the books Poetry from Statement to Meaning and New Worlds of Literature. He wrote widely acclaimed literary articles and spoke internationally on his research as well.
"He was a man of tremendous literary intellect," said Ron Schuchard, professor of English and a colleague and friend of Dr. Beaty's for 30 years. "He was a tremendous resource for all of us in the literary department. He knew the field inside and out."
