Research

I have recently completed a book for Princeton University Press called How the Classics made Shakespeare, a much-expanded version of the inaugural E. H. Gombrich Lectures in the Classical Tradition that I delivered at the Warburg Institute, University of London. This will be published in April 2019.

My current research is taking me back to the Romantic period and to the Environmental Humanities. A foretaste of books to come may be viewed in my Gresham Lectures on Wordsworth & the Romantics and my public lectures for the Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University on How the Humanities can save the Planet.
