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 finished a doctorate on Pindar in 2016 and is now working on the reception of epic in early Greek lyric. Within Christ’s he teaches Greek and Latin literature.
