Cristiano Ragni

I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow in English Literature at the University of Genoa. I was awarded a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of Perugia, Italy, where I am Cultore della Materia in English Literature. In 2019/2020 I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Comparative Literature at the University of Turin. My main research interests lie in the connections between political thinking, religion, and drama in early modern England, with a particular focus on Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, Alberico Gentili, and Giordano Bruno. In this regard, I have published the first Italian edition of Marlowe’s “The Massacre at Paris” (2017) and the monograph “La Nazione e il Teatro. Alberico Gentili, Shakespeare e l’Inghilterra elisabettiana” (2020). I am also interested in early modern Neo-Latin drama and its refashioning of the classical past. I have written contributions on modern English literature too, specifically on Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, Derek Walcott, and Christopher Logue.
