About the Author

Rosemary Bancroft-Marcus was originally a student of classics. She went from a BA in Latin with Greek at Exeter, via a year's study thanks to a British Council grant in Greece and Crete, to an Oxford D.Phil. in Medieval and Modern Languages. The present bilingual edition of Chortatsis evolved out of her doctoral thesis, "Georgios Chortatsis, 16th-century Cretan playwright: a critical study" (LMH, 1978). While following her physicist husband around the world, she has devoted herself to the study of the Veneto-Cretan Renaissance, speaking at international conferences, and writing articles and chapters for proceedings, journals, and collections of essays. She has previously taught a course on Cretan Renaissance literature at Geneva University and gave occasional lecture courses and tutorials for the modern Greek department at Oxford. She currently resides in Belgium where she continues to work on conference papers and editions of Veneto-Cretan poetic texts.
