After retiring from teaching Medieval and Renaissance English drama and literature at the University of Southampton in order to concentrate on writing, I have continued to publish essays in Medieval Drama, Shakespeare Studies, and Tolkien Studies, as well as focussing in recent years on research relating to the sadly neglected medieval romance Sir Bevis of Hampton. I published the newest translation of this poem in 2015 under the title Bevis of Hampton. Further details of my work, publications and research my be found at I also have a dedicated Bevis blog at I am currently researching the possible origins of the Anglo-Norman source of the Bevis story and writing a critical study of the Middle English version of the poem, provisionally entitled: Sir Bevis of Hampton in Context.
