Dr Augustine lectures on English literature from the early modern period to the early eighteenth century. He is a student of the 'politics of discourse', with further interests in early modern print culture, reception history, and poetics, among other things. He has written a number of articles and book chapters on such figures as John Dryden, Andrew Marvell, John Milton, Lord Rochester, and Jonathan Swift, and he is with Steven Zwicker the editor of Lord Rochester in the Restoration World (Cambridge, 2015). He is now completing his first monograph, Aesthetics of Contingency: Writing, Politics, and Culture in England, 1639-1689, which will be published by Manchester University Press. With Christopher D’Addario, he is also editing a new book of essays called Remapping Seventeenth-Century Literature: Histories, Contexts, Networks. He is editor of the Andrew Marvell Society's online journal - http://marvell.openlibhums.org/

Matthew welcomes inquiries from prospective research students working at the intersection of politics and poetry in early modern England, or with other interests that overlap with his own.
