I am currently working on a literary commentary on [Vergil]'s Catalepton and Priapea that concerns itself with the construction of reader and author in relation to the collection alongside the more philological aspects of the poems. This will be complemented by a volume I am co-editing on the ideas of authorship and readership in the Appendices Vergiliana, Tibulliana, and Ouidiana. My doctoral thesis explores the ways in which the Latin elegist Propertius engages with and recasts his own poetic material, as well as that of his peers and predecessors. More broadly, I am interested in the literature of the first century BC (esp. the poets and Vitruvius); the Latin literature of the Middle Ages; the place of the author and the reader in relation to the text; and in textual criticism, palaeography, and the history of the book (see: www.teachingthecodex.com).
