Personal profile

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. 


This year I'm teaching for the following courses: 

(Y1) Literature (Classical Studies); Transformations; Literature 1550-1740; Epic (Classical Studies)

(Y2) Revenge Tragedy; Gender, Desire, and the Renaissance Stage

(MA) Introduction to Literary Research; Intertextual Shakespeare

(ELCE) Literature from Milton to Johnson


I have also taught on the following units: Approaches to Poetry (Y1); Approaches to Shakespeare (Y1); Critical Practice (Y1); Critical Issues (Y1); Legacy (Y2); Literature 2: 1500-1700 (Y2); Satire (Y2); Literature 3: 1700-1830 (Y3); Literatures of Enslavement (Y3); Celebrity Culture: Icons, Industry, and Aesthetics (Y3); Poetry (ELCE); Early Modern Drama (ELCE); Shakespeare and the Traditions of the English Stage (ELCE); Romantic and Victorian Poetry (ELCE); Classical Receptions in English Poetry: A Masterclass (MA)
