I am interested in seventeenth-century French tragedy, notably the plays of Racine, with special attention to his rhetoric and the language of the self. I included a chapter on Phèdre in my book The Strangeness of Tragedy (Oxford University Press, 2009), and am currently working on Bérénice. I hope that other work on Racine will follow.

Je m’intérésse aux tragédies de la France du 17è siècle, spécialement les pièces de Racine, avec un intérêt particulier à sa rhétorique et son langage de l’identité. Mon livre ‘The Strangeness of Tragedy’ (l’étrangeté de la tragédie) (Oxford University Press, 2009) a contenu un chapitre sur Phèdre, et je travail actuellement sur Bérénice, j’espère continuer mes recherches sur Racine dans le futur.
