About John G. Fitch

John's chief interests are in Greek and Roman Literature, especially Seneca's dramas and the "poetry of knowledge" of Lucretius and Vergil. He has also published poetry of his own. Other interests include farming (ancient and modern), local history and genealogy.
One purpose of this website is to describe these various interests and their relationship to John's life and his publications.
This website is also a storehouse of genealogical information about bearers of the Fitch surname in the UK, especially up to the middle of the nineteenth century. Welcome to the website!
