Emeritus Professor of Latin American Literature
Japan, books, prints, popular culture, unusual scripts and cats: these are the great passions of my life.
I came to study Philosophical Theology via a degree in English Literature, and in particular through a desire to understand better the relationship between literary form and metaphysical content in such texts as the fourteenth century poem, "Pearl", and Milton's "Paradise Lost".
