  • About

    My research is mostly on Greek literature, especially Homer and Greek tragedy, though I have also done some work in Hellenistic poetry and a Bryn Mawr Commentary on Lysias 1, and I regularly teach a class on Ovid. My current projects include a new textbook on the Iliad and yet another Homer book, this one about social interactions in the Homeric poems ("facework").
