Constance Everett-Pite

Constance (she/her) is in her first year as a DPhil candidate studying interactions between ancient and modern poetry. With a background in Classics and English, her research is comparative and reads Ancient Greek lyric choruses beside twentieth and twenty-first century Anglophone poetry. By engaging with discourse surrounding classical reception and posthumanism, her research explores how the songs, flight, and migrations of birds might construct a mode of relation to an ancient past. Her current readings include the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop, H.D., Jorie Graham, Anne Carson, and A.E. Stallings, and she has an article on Bishop and Aristophanes forthcoming with Modern Philology, University of Chicago Press. Her project is funded by the Lorne Thyssen Graduate Scholarship at Corpus Christi College.
