Spelman

 Henry’s interests revolve around Greek and Latin lyric poetry (broadly defined to include iamb and elegy) and whatever is relevant to these texts. He takes the latter to include most everything about the ancient world. Henry has recently finished a doctorate on Pindar and is now embarking on a new project on the reception of epic in early Greek lyric. Within Christ’s he will teach Greek and Latin literature.
