Erik Hage

Erik Hage is an American author, journalist, and cultural critic from Rensselaer County, New York.

His books include Cormac McCarthy: A Literary Companion (McFarland & Co., 2010), which was deemed "indispensable," "engaging," and "highly recommended" by Choice, the magazine published by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), and The Words and Music of Van Morrison (2009). He is also the author of The Melville-Hawthorne Connection: A Study of the Literary Friendship (January, 2014), which was been praised as "a perceptive and nuanced reading of the friendship between Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville," by Melissa Pennell (Student Companion to Nathaniel Hawthorne and Masterpieces of American Romantic Literature) and "a compelling analysis of each author’s literary influence upon the other," by Randall Clack (The Marriage of Heaven and Earth: Alchemical Regeneration in the Works of Taylor, Poe, Hawthorne, and Fuller). A June 2014 Choice magazine review of the The Melville-Hawthorne Connection stated, "The readings of the novels, especially Moby-Dick, are excellent, and Hage's prose is graceful and metaphorical."

Hage also penned two chapters in the 2012 volume The Album: A Guide to Pop Music's Most Provocative, Influential, and Important Creations (ABC-CLIO), and he was a contributing writer to The All Music Guide to Rock: The Definitive Guide to Rock, Pop, and Soul (2003, Backbeat Books).

In addition, he has been a frequent contributor to Allmusic, No Depression magazine, and Pop Culture Press. A onetime news editor in New York City at MJI Broadcasting and Premiere Radio Networks, the largest syndication company in the United States based on popularity of programming, and a former newspaper columnist and feature writer, he is currently an associate professor of journalism, communication, and English at the State University of New York at Cobleskill. He has also taught at Elmira College, Binghamton University, and Excelsior College.

In 2006, he earned a New York Press Association Award for "Business, Financial and Economic" writing, and his work has appeared in the Nashville Scene newspaper, PopMatters, Metroland newsweekly, the Times-Union newspaper (Albany, NY), The Literary Encyclopedia, and the Trouser Press Guide (
