Lecturer in Victorian Literature
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Telephone: +44 (0)191 208 7795
I studied at Leeds, York and Cambridge. I came to Newcastle in 2012.
My interests are in Victorian poetry and poetics, especially Gerard Manley Hopkins and William Barnes, Victorian literature and religion, dialect poetry, and nonsense writing.
My book Gerard Manley Hopkins and the Poetry of Religious Experience was published by Cambridge University Press in 2017. The book has been reviewed in Review 19. I am now 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.
