I have wide and vigorous interests across the field of early modern literature and thought, principally in France. I have published extensively on French Renaissance scientific poetry, the history of medicine (Jacques Dubois in particular), early Renaissance court festival (the Festival of the Bastille in 1518, and the better known Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520). In both cases my work has been based on editing of texts describing the event, and in the case of the Field of Cloth of Gold the discovery of a previously unknown verse description of the meeting (for those of you who saw the recent David Dimbleby programme, the dragon flying through the sky was not a firework, but a kite - as the Dubois [Sylvius] text which I edit shows quite clearly).
