Dr Amanda H
DPhil Chaucer's Poetics, University of Oxford - Amanda specialises in Medieval English literature and the English language. Her first book was on Chaucer's poetics; she edited Tottel's Miscellany, and worked on a book and database on rhyme in medieval and sixteenth century love lyric. She's currently working on a new book about anthologies of ‘English verse’ and the fantasies of England they project. It picks up on her longstanding interests in poetry anthologies and the agendas which drive the critical framing of texts and uses them to explore an area which is particularly topical given the ongoing debates around Brexit and the drive for Scottish independence.
