Nineteenth-century American literature
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Areas of expertise
My primary field of research is Victorian poetry, especially the work of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Other strong interests include nineteenth-century American literature, and the work of Rudyard Kipling, Marcel Proust, and Bob Dylan.
My current research includes a project on the 'figure of the singer' in English poetry, and (with Samantha Matthews) an edition of Henry James's The Bostonians; I am also planning a collaborative project on the use of French words and phrases in English literature.
Languages (other than English)
Extensive experience of printed media (articles and reviews). I have done quite a lot of radio and am comfortable with that. I have done occasional pieces to camera, both live and recorded.
