I am a specialist in British Romanticism, with particular interests in Orientalism, Irish studies, and the reception of the classical tradition. Primarily I work on the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, and John Keats, with attention to other authors such as Joanna Baillie, Sara Coleridge, Edward Gibbon, Charles Lamb, and Thomas de Quincey. Increasingly I am drawn to nineteenth-century interdisciplinarity, particularly the relation of literary texts to material culture. I’m also an author of narrative non-fiction. What unites these themes is a fascination with what happens when different cultures come into contact; whether it’s the way that ninteenth-century authors reinterpret classical myth, or how Zen traditions pass into modern settings.
