Eloisa Bressan received her B.A. in Classics and her M.A. in Modern Philology from the University of Padua in Italy. Her M.A. dissertation investigated the montage of elements from Ancient Greek and medieval Provençal literatures in The Cantos of Ezra Pound. After completing her M.A., Eloisa pursued her graduate studies in France until finally transferring to the doctoral program in Comparative Literary Studies here at Northwestern University. Her current interests focus on the reception of medieval lyric in modernist poetry, and on the rise of philological studies as a key to read modernism. She is a member of the Poetry and Poetics cluster at Northwestern.
