Having retired from the Department of English at the University of Bristol I am an independent scholar based in Oxford and London.   These pages describe some of my current and earlier projects.
At present I am working mainly in classical reception; I am particularly interested in the relationship between Greek literature (ancient and modern) and literatures in English.  Three current projects are:

  • Greek in literary Modernism (especially Joyce and Pound)
  • the reception of Hesiod and Pindar in English poetry
  • the idea of a national poet: C. Day Lewis and George Seferis.
