Personal Statement

My research interests are primarily British and American women’s writing of the early twentieth century, modernism, as well as race and contemporary poetry in English. My books include: Reading Mina Loy’s Autobiographies: Myth of the Modern Woman (a critical study of the modernist writer Mina Loy’s literary archive), scholarly editions of the Collected Poems of Hope Mirrlees and the Selected Poems of Nancy Cunard, and two books of poetry, The Marble Orchard and Eidolon (the latter is a rewriting of the myth of Helen of Troy in modern America). My essays and reviews have appeared in the Guardian, The Los Angeles Review of Books, the Financial Times and the Times Literary Supplement. I am a BBC New Generation Thinker and Co-Director of Liverpool’s Centre for New and International Writing.
