Owen Roberson

I am studying for a PhD considering the way in which Old English poets and their Old Norse counterparts adopted Christian characters and used them to explore topoi beyond the material they inherited. Using Satan as a case study, I am analysing poetic representations to consider characterisation both in terms of depiction and narrative function.

Previously, I studied for my MA in Literature and as an undergraduate at Durham, and am returning to study after a two years of work.

I will also be a webmaster over the coming years.
