Areas of expertise My principle interest is in nineteenth century literature, and my publications in that field have previously been on Shelley and Byron [Byron and Place: History, Translation, Nostalgia was published in 2003], with more recent research interests in Coleridge, Keats, Hazlitt, De Quincey, D.G.Rossetti and Pre-Raphaelitism, and Robert Browning. My particular interest is in the relations between literature and art (painting, sculpture and photography). Writing for Art: The Aesthetics of Ekphrasis was published in 2008. This covered inter-art relations from the early nineteenth century to the present day, with an emphasis upon the Victorians, but also reflected my further interest in post-war American literature. I am currently writing a book on the relationship between literature and art in the nineteenth century that will cover both poetry and prose.
