Biography

Graham Tulloch undertook a degree in English at the University of Adelaide from which he graduated with First Class honours. He studied briefly at Macquarie University before taking up a Commonwealth Scholarship at the University of Leicester working with K.C. Phillipps. His PhD thesis was on the subject of Walter Scott's period language. With the addition of a study of Scott's Scottish language this was published as The Language of Walter Scott in the Language Library series in 1980. Since 1973 he has been teaching English at Flinders University. He has published books and articles on Scottish literature and language and has edited Walter Scott's Ivanhoe, Marcus Clarke's His Natural Life, Catherine Martin's An Australian Girl, Walter Scott's Shorter Fiction and James Hogg's The Three Perils of Man (with Judy King), and Walter Scott's previously unpublished works The Siege of Malta and Bizarro (with J.H.
