I am a Lecturer in Early Modern English Literature at the University of Salford Manchester. My research interests focus on early modern literature with a particular emphasis on drama. I have written articles on intertextuality in John Webster¿s plays (Il Confronto Letterario 2007), maternal misrecognition in early modern tragedies (Nuova Cultura 2010), the notion of identity in Shakespeare and his contemporaries (Universitalia 2011), the question of authorship in Arden of Faversham (Memoria di Shakespeare, Bulzoni 2012), the relation between dominant and marginal languages in translating for the theatre (Routledge 2013), performativity in the Victorian adaptations of The Tempest (Palgrave 2014), on the natural and monumental body in Romeo and Juliet (Routledge 2016 and ETS 2018) and on Shakespearean narratives used in particular times of crisis in Italy (forthcoming). I have extensively written on the figure of the malcontent (Notes and Queries 2012 and ETS 2014), on intertextuality on stage (Anglica 2014), and on skepticism and self in Elizabethan and Jacobean period (English Literature, 2014). More recently, I have co-edited a volume on Forms of Hypocrisy in Early Modern England (Routledge 2018) and co-edited a Special Issue dedicated to ¿John Webster¿s Theatre of (Dis)obedience and Damnation¿ (American Notes and Queries)
