Bio

I read and write about satire from Chaucer to Sterne. I’m currently thinking about the strengths and limitations of satire as a genre: is ridicule ever an effective way of inculcating moral change, or is it mostly good at confirming divisions and broadcasting quarrels? Additional interests include epic poetry, classical reception, and Njal’s Saga.
