Eighteenth-Century Poetry

Clare Bucknell

My research focusses on poetry of the mid- and later eighteenth century. I am especially interested in what happened to formal verse satire after 1750, and have worked on satirists including Charles Churchill, John Wolcot (‘Peter Pindar’) and Lord Byron. I also have interests in early modern classical reception, Enlightenment intellectual history and the history of criticism, particularly criticism of satire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
