Dr. Nethercut has published broadly on Latin literature, especially poetry, of all periods. His first book, Ennius Noster: Lucretius and the Annales (scheduled to be published by Oxford University Press in 2020), represents the first book-length study in any language devoted to the literary relationship between the two most important Latin epic poets of the Roman Republic. He has also published other articles on Lucretius, Vergil, and Ovid, with others forthcoming on Ennius, Naevius, Tibullus, Propertius, Lucan, Seneca, Statius, and Silius Italicus. He is currently writing another book on the reception of Lucretius in Latin literature of all genres during the Roman Empire.
