Personal profile

Research interests

I have published work on Romanticism, particularly on Byron and P.B. Shelley. I have also written about the relationship between literature and art (painting, sculpture, photography), especially in the nineteenth century, including specific figures such as John Ruskin, Walter Pater, D.G. Rossetti and Robert Browning. I am currently working on a study of Walter Pater and Personhood. Other current research interests include the early work of W.B. Yeats, Decadence and the 1890s, and early modernism. This research is focused upon the relationship between literature and theology during that period, and forms the basis of a new project on Antinomianism.

I would be interested in offering PhD supervision in any of these areas.



I currently teach on the following courses:

Literature 1740-1900

Literature 1900-Present

Modernist Writers (Yeats, Eliot, Woolf, Mansfield, Auden)

American Literature: 1945-Present

Romantic Poetry and Poetics (MA level)

Victorian Literature and Place (MA level)
