Samanta Trivellini graduated in English Literature with a dissertation on Salman Rushdie, and in 2013 earned a Ph.D at the University of Parma with a dissertation on the reception of Ovid from Chaucer to the present. Her area of research and her published essays mainly focus on the presence of classical intertexts and myths and the rewriting of classical texts in contemporary and women’s literature in English (Timberlake Wertenbaker, Joanna Laurens, Bernardine Evaristo, Margaret Atwood, Kate Atkinson). She has recently published her first monograph: Filomela, Filomele. Variazioni del mito ovidiano nella letteratura in lingua inglese (Aracne editrice, 2017).
Other areas of interest include the poetry of W.B. Yeats and the Modernist novel. During her Ph.D she tutored on Modernist, Postmodernist and Postcolonial literature; after her graduation, she taught modules on the representation of Italy in English Renaissance drama. She is a member of AIA (Italian Association of Anglistics) and “Cultore della materia” at the University of Parma.
