Dr Michael Hurley
Dr Hurley is currently working on a number of projects, including: a book on the history of poetics; a co-edited collection of essays on the non-fiction prose styles of the long nineteenth century; a collection of essays on Victorian poetry; and a book on how and why five poets (Blake, Hopkins, Christina Rossetti, Tennyson and T. S. Eliot) chose to express and explore their religious faith through verse.
