Chris Noble, Ph.D., is professor of English and humanities at Azusa Pacific University, teaching literature, aesthetics, critical theory, and composition. He has published on a broad variety of topics including gender theory, Christian higher education, and 19th-century British literature and culture. Poet W.B. Yeats once claimed that “education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire,” but Noble politely demurs from this view, believing that it can be both.
