Andy Lemons studies poetic form, mostly of the medieval and renaissance varieties. His dissertation, currently in production, concerns the beginnings, ends, and middles of medieval poetry, especially in the works of Chaucer and the Sir Gawain-poet. He received his BA in Latin and Chinese from the University of Georgia, and continued their until the completion of an MA in Classical Languages in 2006. After a year abroad, having gotten a second MA in Medieval Icelandic Studies at the University of Iceland in 2007, he began his work at Princeton. With the support of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, he is presently collaborating with two other scholars on an edition and translation of Latin poetry related to the Battle of Lepanto for the I Tatti Renaissance Library. He is also an avid archer.
