Keywords Latin literature
literary theory
Roman love elegy
Latin poetry
Areas of expertise My primary interests are Latin literature and its reception, literary theory and science studies. As well as books which explore critical responses to Roman love elegy (The Arts of Love) and use Lucretius as a focus for thinking about current debates in the study of science (Rethinking Reality), I have written many articles on Latin poetry, including influential studies of Lucretius, Virgilís Eclogues and Aeneid, and Ovidís Heroides and Ars Amatoria. I am currently preparing articles on violence in Senecaís Phaedra and on elegy and narrativity. I am the joint editor (with Charles Martindale) of New Directions in Classics, a series of monographs to be published by I.B.Tauris showcasing innovative research in Classics, to which I will be contributing one of the first volumes, on literature and time.
