My research focuses on fourteenth-century English and Italian literature, giving special attention on the ways in which poets such as Chaucer and Dante represent the development of their own lexicon and literary form. Interests intersecting with this work include vernacular translation, commentarial culture, poetry and poetics, manuscript studies, and questions of authorship and authority.
