Staff Profile

Dr Martin Dubois

Lecturer in Victorian Literature

Background

I studied at Leeds, York, and Cambridge. I came to Newcastle in 2012.

My interests are in Victorian poetry, especially Gerard Manley Hopkins and William Barnes, Victorian literature and religion, dialect poetry, nonsense writing, and modernist poetry.

My book Gerard Manley Hopkins and the Poetry of Religious Experience is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press. I am also working on an article on the nonsense Edward Lear wrote in India in the 1870s, and preparing a chapter for The Edinburgh Companion to Nonsense, ed. Anna Barton and James Williams.
