About Professor McBrine

I teach courses at Southern on Mythology, Latin, History of the English Language, and Medieval Literature.  I am especially interested in classical and medieval poetry (in Latin and Old English). My research is devoted to the study of late classical Christian verse and its reception in medieval England.
