About the Author

For more than twenty years, I have been teaching ancient Greek at the Département des Sciences de l’Antiquité of the École Normale Supérieure (PSL) in Paris, France.

My area of expertise is archaic and classical Greek literature, especially Homer’s epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey, and the relationships between them and other archaic poetic traditions (Hesiod's poems and the Epic Cycle in particular), as well as their legacy during the classical period in the works of poets (for instance in choral lyric poetry or in tragedies) and prose writers (orators, historians and philosophers). I also study the first historians, Herodotus et Thucydides, as well as Demosthenes (and Aeschines).


Here is a list of the main articles and books I've published (with their English abstracts), linked to their online versions when possible:
