During the past decade, Terryl L. Givens, who holds the James A. Bostwick Chair in English at the University of Richmond in Virginia, has become one of the most prominent and prolific authors in Mormon intellectual circles. Armed with a Ph.D. in comparative literature from the University of North Carolina, he teaches courses on romanticism, 19th century culture and the Bible and literature. He also published a book for children, "Dragon Scales and Willow Leaves," late in 1997.
