Research

I am interested in romantic poetry and poetics and how they live on in contemporary critical thought. My doctoral thesis is called 'Life after Life: A Reading of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Walter Benjamin' and is an attempt to intertwine the afterlives of the two writers, despite the distance between them.
