Research interests

My research interests are concerned with English/Classics literary relations c.1550-c.1830 and the reception of Augustan poetry in the long eighteenth century. I am also interested in the role of allusion and imitation, particularly within epic and mock-epic poetry. My current research is on the English translators of Virgil in the middle decades of the seventeenth century, from the outbreak of the civil wars through the Interregnum and into the early years of the Restoration.
