Over a long career my research interests have undergone several changes.  For the last twenty years I have concerned myself mainly with Greek tragic drama, but I have also written on Latin elegiac poetry, the Aeneid, Senecan tragedy,  Roman topography, and Aristophanes.  I offer courses in Greek drama, Senecan drama, Latin literature of the Golden Age, and the political and social history of the Roman Republic.
