New Senior Tutor

We are pleased to welcome to our team our new senior tutor: Mr William Poulos.
 
Mr William Poulos holds a BA (Hons) in Classics from the University of Sydney and a Master’s in English from the University of Cambridge. He has tutored Latin at university level and presented his research at conferences in Australia and the UK. When not teaching he writes literary criticism for magazines in Australia and Britain such as PN Review and The Spectator Australia.
 
Besides Shakespeare, his favourite authors include political satirists of the eighteenth century, particularly Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift. A student of Greek drama, he played a talking cloud in a Greek language production of Aristophanes’ Clouds, which mocks prominent philosophers like Socrates.
 
Mr Poulos believes that it is ordinary people who produce great literature; the goal of study is not to kill its spirit but to recreate it.
