Her teaching interests also include modern British literature and the poetics of Virginia Woolf, comparative literature and translation studies, as well as critical theory with a focus on the work of Derrida, with whom she was fortunate to study. Coming to teaching from a career in law, Professor Blythe is interested in the nexus of law and literature. Her poetry appears in "The Woodstock Poetry Review," and her publications include a collection of poetry, "Opaque Confession." In 2008 she received the Gallatin Adviser of Distinction Award.
