Dr Michael D. Hurley

My work extends across the long nineteenth century, and into Modernism. I am especially interested in questions of literary form and style, on the crossover of literary studies with philosophy, theology and stylistics, and on the connections between how books and poems make us feel and what they make us think.
University Lecturer in English

Much of my published work has an interdisciplinary edge to it; but above all, my research is directed towards ultimate questions and questions of value. My most recent book is Faith in Poetry: Verse Style as a Mode of Religious Belief (Bloomsbury, 2017)
