My research concerns the history of humanist rhetorical education and its impact on the development of English literature in one of its most celebrated periods, the Renaissance. My book, Untutored Lines: The Making of the English Epyllion, shows the impact of rhetoric on the formation of social identities and literary genres in the late sixteenth century.
