My research interests cover a broad span from Latin literature to modern and contemporary Irish, Scottish and English literature. I am principally researching in the field of poetry (Romantic, modern and contemporary), though I also have strong interests in modern fiction, especially fantasy, children’s and crossover literature. I am working on a book on the poetry of Virgil and Seamus Heaney, and have just finished editing a collection of essays on Katabasis, or the literary descent into the underworld. Future projects include writing on the literature of birds, and in general, the changing ways that contemporary writers figure the more-than-human environment in their poetry, fiction and prose writing.
