Christopher D’Addario teaches and studies early modern British literature. His teaching interests include Shakespeare and early modern drama, Milton, sixteenth- and seventeenth-century poetry, transatlantic literature, and the literature of the city. He is the author of Exile and Journey in Seventeenth-Century Literature (Cambridge University Press, 2007). His current book project investigates the interplay between everyday life and early modern literature, specifically in ca. 1600 London. His essays have appeared or are forthcoming in Philological Quarterly, English Literary Renaissance, and The Huntington Library Quarterly. They have also been included in the essay collections The New Milton Criticism (Cambridge, 2012) and The Literatures of the Exile in the English Revolution and Its Aftermath (Ashgate, 2010).
