Professor Morris´s main research interests are in twentieth-century Spanish literature, especially of the period 1920-1936. He has paid particular attention to the works of Rafael Alberti and Federico García Lorca, to the influence of the cinema on Spanish writers, and to the impact of Surrealism on writers of mainland Spain and the Canary Islands. In Tenerife he has concentrated on Domingo López Torres, whose complete works he has edited (in collaboration), and on Pedro García Cabrera, on whom he has written two books in recent years.
