Danielle Clarke was educated in London and Oxford before coming to UCD in 1994. Most of her publications to date have dealt with writing by early modern women, their engagement with mainstream literary culture in particular. Other areas in which she has published include sexuality, literary theory, translation in the Renaissance, and textual criticism. Professor Clarke is currently at work on a major book-length project looking at the negotiation of form, genre and language in women’s poetry of the Renaissance period. She continues to publish widely on a range of topics, including (most recently) life-writing, poetic form in Marlowe’s poetry and the public/private divide in early modern England.
