I am a Classics professor at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee and enjoy writing on a range of subjects, from the Classical to the personal to the political.
My current interests lie mainly in literary translation of Greco-Roman literature. My translation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses into iambic pentameter (included in The New Yorker’s Best Books of 2022) has just been released by Penguin Classics, and I have also published a verse translation of Horace’s Epodes, Odes, and Carmen Saeculare (Oklahoma, 2020).
I studied Classics and English as an undergraduate at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, then earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in Classics at the University of Virginia. You can find out more about my writing, research, and teaching using the menu above.
