Thesis title (preliminary): Commentary on Statius, Thebaid 6


After reading Classics at the University of Warwick (2016-19), I completed an MPhil with a focus on Latin literature at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge (2019-20). My doctoral project is a commentary on Book 6 of Statius' Thebaid. It will replace H. W. Fortgens' Latin-language commentary published in 1934 as the most recent companion to this part of the poem. 

Research Interests

  • Latin poetry of the first century AD
  • Post-Augustan epic, especially Statius and Lucan
  • Textual criticism
