Description of Research

Summary Statement of Research Interests

A graduate of the Universities of Manchester and Cambridge in the United Kingdom, Professor Boyle taught for twenty years at Monash University Australia before taking up his appointment at USC in 1989. His primary area of research is Roman literature of the late republic and the early empire. At the undergraduate level he teaches a variety of Latin language and literature classes and more general courses on Roman civilization, literature in translation (especially drama), politics and art. His graduate seminars address particular authors, or genres, or the Latin literary system as a whole, emphasizing the semiotic interplay between text and text and text and culture. He is the author or editor of twenty five books on Roman literature with especial concentration on Virgil, Ovid and Seneca.His edition of Seneca's Medea with introduction, translation and commentary, will be published by Oxford University Press in January 2014. His current project for Oxford is an edition of Seneca's Thyestes. Professor Boyle is editor of the classical literary journal, Ramus, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011. Ramus will be published by Cambridge University Press from 2014 onwards.
