Professor Frank's publications include Charles Dickens and the Romantic Self (University of Nebraska Press, 1984); an essay on Freud and Dora in Psychic Seduction (University of Illinois Press, 1989); and articles on the fiction of Dickens, Doyle, and Poe in the Dickens Studies Annual (1999), Nineteenth-Century Literature (1989, 1995, 1999), and Signs (1996). His writing covers nineteenth-century science, detective fiction, and psychoanalysis. His new book project, "Reconstructions: Science and Detection on Poe, Dickens, and Doyle," should be completed in 2000. In his undergraduate and graduate teaching, Professor Frank is engaged in new-historical approaches to the discipline of intellectual history and in the application of such approaches to nineteenth-century science and literature. Each of his courses "is designed as a writing course in which students engage in the art of literary analysis."
