Tutor Spotlight: Lucy Rayfield
4th March 2014
Shakespeare’s Plays and Elizabethan England (Oxford)
Lucy is currently a Masters student at Balliol College, Oxford. She specialises in French and Italian Renaissance theatre, but also studies its English counterpart. She has worked in the fields of sixteenth-century comic, tragic and pastoral drama, with a particular focus on the effects of the Wars of Religion on theatrical traditions.
She also has an interest in the use of classical rhetoric and dramatic theory by Renaissance playwrights. Lucy is hoping to begin her doctorate at Oxford in September.
