I work with Restoration and eighteenth-century poetry and pastoral literature. I am particularly interested in the verse dialogue and the way the brevity of the form impacts its dialogism. I also study how women poets appropriate and modify the dialogue form to convey their feelings about female friendship and women’s relationships with men. Some authors of interest to me include Katherine Philips, Anne Finch, John Gay, and Andrew Marvell. You can view my CV here.
