Her poems, translations, and book reviews have been published widely. Her translation of Christine de Pisan’s Treasure of the City of Ladies (1406) was its first English translation (Penguin Classics). Her translation of Moratín’s El sí de las niñas was performed at the Prince Theatre in Greenwich, and her own play, ‘Gertrude, Queen of Denmark’, a feminist take on Hamlet, was performed at the Lion and Unicorn in Kentish Town.
