Author Biography

Daniel Gabelman, King's Ely Senior School

Daniel Gabelman is Head of English at King’s Ely Senior School in Cambridgeshire, England, and previously taught English at Eastbourne College in East Sussex. He received his Ph.D. from the University of St Andrews where his thesis focused on the fairy tales of George MacDonald. In addition to George MacDonald, Daniel has published articles and chapters on various 19th- and early 20th-century writers such as Lord Byron, Lewis Carroll, J.M. Barrie, G.K. Chesterton, and C.S. Lewis. His first monograph entitled George MacDonald: Divine Carelessness and Fairytale Levity was published by Baylor University Press in 2013. With Jeremiah Mercurio, he is currently completing a monograph on literary doodling in the long nineteenth century, focusing on the relationship between doodles and linguistic text in the manuscripts, notebooks, and libraries of such authors as William Makepeace Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, Max Beerbohm, and G.K. Chesterton.
