Stephen Hinds is Professor of Classics at the University of Washington, Seattle.  He is the author of The Metamorphosis of Persephone: Ovid and the Self-Conscious Muse (Cambridge 1987) and Allusion and Intertext: Dynamics of Appropriation in Roman Poetry (Cambridge 1998).  With Denis Feeney, he co-founded and co-edited the Cambridge book series Roman Literature and its Contexts (13 volumes, with the final title published in 2016).  Among his most recent articles are ‘Seneca’s Ovidian loci’ (2011), 'The Self-conscious Cento' (2014), 'Claudianism in the De Raptu Proserpinae' (2013) and 'Return to Enna:  Ovid and Ovidianism in Claudian's De Raptu Proserpinae' (2016); details in the pdf CV linked to the research tab.  A project in progress, with the working title Poetry across Languages: Literature, Literalism and the Latin Tradition, involves exploration of the cross-linguistic and intercultural relations of Latin literature, both in antiquity and between antiquity and (early) modernity.   More longstanding commitments include a Cambridge ‘green and yellow’ commentary on Ovid, Tristia 1.  Stephen's page on offers access to some work in progress, along with a few less readily accessible items among his recent publications.
