3rd Year Student


I graduated in 2010 from Yale with a BA in Literature. I then studied for three years at Clare College, Cambridge on a Paul Mellon Fellowship, where I wrote a dissertation on Wordsworth. I have wide linguistic interests and believe in the value of studying language for the sake of language. Authors of particular interest to me include Rousseau, Shelley, Leopardi, Baudelaire, and many others.
