Research Summary and Profile

Research interests:
Early Modern, Language and Literature (Italian)
Regions:
Europe
Summary of research interests and expertise:
My principal research interests are in the literature and culture of Italy from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, in particular: • narrative poetry and the romance epic genre from the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries including the Carolingian tradition in Italy, narratives about Alexander the Great, and the fusion of classical, romance and chivalric material in epic texts. I am currently senior editor for a volume on Charlemagne narratives in Italy. • The Italian learned Academies of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. • The history of the book in Italy including illustrations to early printed vernacular texts, printing by the learned Academies, and library collections of Italian books. • Ariosto and the Orlando furioso, including its legacy in European literature and culture, on which I am co-editing a volume of essays. I have a particular interest in the work of the late fifteenth-century poet Francesco Cieco da Ferrara and his contemporaries and am currently ediing his major work Il Mambriano.
