Primary fields of research

For twenty years I have been the Contributing Editor of the Powys Journal, of which I am now the Editor. My interests are extensive, ranging across all parts of the English-writing world, and beyond, to art history, comparative literature, literary theory and book history. I currently teach a course on Shakespeare and the ideas of England and Britain, and another on ‘Rotten English’, based on a long engagement with the work of Ken Saro-Wiwa. Many of my recent publications have been on modern and contemporary poetry, from Thomas Hardy and Gerard Manley Hopkins to Geoffrey Hill and Anne Blonstein.
