Alison Rosenblitt

Dr Alison Rosenblitt is a member of the Oxford Classics Faculty. She studied Ancient and Modern History as an undergraduate at Wadham College, Oxford. She took a double First, winning the Arnold Prize for her thesis in modern history and coming proxime for the Gibbs Prize.

She is now a Roman historian with an interest in the rhetoric and politics of late republican demagogues. She has also worked on the modernist American poet, E.E. Cummings, whose poetry turned the English language upside-down. What may appear to be disparate interests are united for her by a fascination with the defiance of authority in all its forms.

Her most recent book, The Beauty of Living: E.E. Cummings in the Great War (W.W. Norton, 2020), was a New York Times Editors’ Choice. Her next book will be a biography of Cicero with Princeton University Press.
