Interests
I am interested in medieval Italian literature and its rapport with the classical past both through direct transmission as well as mediation through Arabic culture. I am particularly interested in the medieval lyric, especially the production of the Scuola Siciliana and Dante's Rime. Other interests include medieval rhetoric, the novella and its antecedents, and material culture.
