Current Research

I am currently researching English translations of Virgil, supervised jointly by the Classics and English departments. My work looks specifically at the Aeneid, and how the voice of the narrator is modified or manipulated in translations, and what effect this may have on the reception and cultural appreciation of the text. By intertwining previous research on Virgil's narrative voice, translation theory, and theories of narratology, my aim is to situate the translator within a formalist model of narrative voice and structure.
