Distinguished Research in the Humanities Award
Williams H. O'Donnell

Retiring this Spring, Professor O’Donnell has served the University of Memphis for twenty years, first as Chair of the English Department from 1986 to 1993, and then as a distinguished member of the faculty.  In his main field of scholarship, as a leading critic and editor of William Butler Yeats—the Irish poet, novelist, and playwright who is a major figure in international modernist literature—Dr. O’Donnell is internationally recognized as a skilled and productive scholar of prestige and distinction for his many conference presentations, articles, and his six major book publications.  These include original critical scholarly readings as well as exemplary scholarly editions of Yeats’ wide-ranging work that have helped significantly redefine the place and prestige of this important literary figure.
