About Johann David Wyss

Johann David Wyss (1743 1818) was an army chaplain with four sons- it was to entertain them that he wrote "The Swiss Family Robinson." His son Johan Rudolf prepared the manuscript for publication in Zurich in 1812 13. The first English edition was translated by William Godwin in 1814. J. Hillis Miller taught for many years at Johns Hopkins University and then at Yale University, before going to the University of California at Irvine in 1986, where he is now a UCI Distinguished Research Professor. He is the author of many books and essays on nineteenth- and twentieth-century English, European, and American literature and on literary theory. His books include "Others," "Speech Acts in Literature," and "On Literature," the last of which includes a section on "The Swiss Family Robinson." Literary critic and feminist thinker Elizabeth Janeway is the author of six novels and many works of nonfiction, including "Improper Behavior," "Powers of the Weak," and "Between Myth and Morning.""
