Benjamin Weber studies the development of English literature and intellectual culture in the Middle Ages. He is particularly interested in the influence of Latin literature on the development of Old English poetry, and his current project focuses on the role played by poetic translations in Anglo-Saxon attempts to appropriate Latin literary culture. Other research interests include medieval poetics (especially alliterative verse), Old Norse literature, medieval theories of rhetoric, and the reception of Classical texts in the Middle Ages.
