Thesis Title

Romantic Afterlives: The Making of a Spanish Wordsworth

Research overview

I am a visiting PhD student at the Department of English Literature and Creative Writing at Lancaster University, working under the supervision of Prof. Simon Bainbridge, and a doctoral candidate at the University of La Rioja, in northern Spain. My thesis considers the Romantic cult of posterity and the textual afterlives of William Wordsworth in continental Europe. My broader research interests include nineteenth-century reading practices, the relationship between poetry and place, as well as Romantic-era walking and perceptions of landscape. Together with Prof Tim Fulford (De Montfort) and Dr Cristina Flores (Rioja), I am co-editor of the forthcoming scholarly edition of Robert Southey’s Letters from Spain and Portugal (Routledge, 2020).
