What Was English Verse? Principal's Research Seminar

Dr Daniel Sawyer

22 May 2024 / 5:30pm-7pm

What Was English Verse?

Dr Daniel Sawyer is an Associate Research Fellow at St Hilda’s College and Departmental Lecturer in the English Faculty. He studies Middle English writings using codicology—that is, the systematic study of manuscripts—editing, and the close reading of verse form. His books consider the history of reading (OUP, 2020) and Middle English poetry (OUP 2024).

As well as talking about English Verse, Dr Sawyer will also be launching his new book How to Read Middle English Poetry, which covers verse from 1150 or so to 1500, and is for students and general readers.
