Alison Case

Alison Case is a professor of English at Williams College, specializing in Victorian literature and the novel. Author of the respected text Plotting Women: Gender and Narration in the Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century British Novel and coauthor of Reading the Nineteenth-Century Novel: Austen to Eliot, Case’s academic work is rooted in narrative theory and gender studies. Her debut work of fiction, Nelly Dean, is a compelling and heartbreaking novel that reimagines Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights through the perspective of the Earnshaws’ loyal servant, Nelly Dean. Told in “sinewy, visceral prose,” Nelly Dean is enriched by Case’s literary scholarship and sensitivity to historical context, and has, according to the Independent, “the makings of a feminist classic.”
