George Hudson
George Hudson teaches courses in 17th-century British literature and in Milton, but one of his favorite topics is the effect of landscape on the English imagination.

For this reason, he loves to lead the London Study Group because it allows him to take his students hiking on Dartmoor and in the fells of the Lake District.

He says, "I like a classroom with a limitless horizon."
