Ryan Platte

Ryan Platte (PhD 2008, University of Washington) is a professor of Classics at Washington University in St. Louis. His interests concern the history and evolution of language and poetic technique in both the Greek and Roman worlds, while his research focuses principally on the Homeric corpus. This work privileges a linguistic approach to literary material and draws heavily from the field of comparative Indo-European poetics.
