My first book was a study of the effects of the First World War on 20th-century Irish poetry; more recently, I co-edited (with Alan Gillis) The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish Poetry. I've just edited a new edition of Robert Graves's First World War memoir, Good-bye to All That, for Penguin Classics (2014) and am currently working on a study of Graves's writings.
I teach primarily in the areas of 19th and 20th century Irish literature, modern poetry - particularly contemporary Irish and British poetry - and modernist literature. I’ve supervised research students in the areas of 19th & 20th century Irish literature, 20th-century British, Irish, and American poetry, and 20th-century British fiction, and welcome proposals in the areas of modern British and Irish literature. I also supervise the critical component of creative writing PhDs (fiction and poetry). I teach on the MA in Poetry: Creativity and Criticism, and also on the MA in Irish Literature, where I run a special option on 20th century Irish Poetry.
