Recent Sewanee English graduate, Beverley Catlett C'16, has published part of her Sewanee honors thesis in the prestigious interdisciplinary journal Janus Head.

Her article, entitled "Madness as Prophecy in Dystopia: Shakespeare's Hamlet, Nietzsche's Philosophy, and Heller's Satire of Wartime Insanity" focuses on the theme of madness as "an object of fascination in the Western cultural, literary, medical, and philosophical consciousness."

Catlett earned honors in English and won the Andrew Lyle award for Southern Studies in 2016.  

She is currently a graduate student in English at Georgetown University and is spending this summer in New Haven, Connecticut, helping catalogue the papers of Professor Harold Bloom, who has become a mentor to her.
