She specializes in Renaissance literature and is working on two book projects: a monograph entitled Donne’s Spenser: Between Allegory and Metaphor and an edited collection of essays, Spenser and Donne: Thinking Poets. Ryzhik's publications include "Complaint and Satire in Spenser and Donne: Limits of Poetic Justice" (forthcoming in English Literary Renaissance), "Books, Fans, and Mallarmé's Butterfly" (PMLA, May 2011), and "Chastening Pictures: Donne and Aretino" (Renaissance Studies in Honor of Joseph Connors, Olschki, 2013). Her research and teaching interests extend to poetry of all periods, satire and humor, Shakespeare (especially in performance), Italian Renaissance art and literature, the classical tradition, figurative language, allegory, and, most recently, anime.
