From 1862 to 1864 he was fellow and tutor of Queen's College, Oxford. In 1864 he became principal of St. Edmund Hall, and in 1903 he was made canon of Canterbury Cathedral. He became honorary fellow of Pembroke and Queen's colleges, and received the Dublin D.Litt. His publications comprise:

  • Aristotle's Ethics, books i-iv (5th edition, 1896)
  • Aristotle's Poetics, with Notes (1875)
  • Time References in the Divine Commedia (1887), translated and published at Florence in 1900 with the title Gli accenni al tempo nella Divina Commedia; Textual Criticism of the Divina Commedia
  • Dante and his Early Biographers (1890)
  • Tutte le opere di Dante Alighieri, the "Oxford Dante", by all means the best edition of Dante's works which, together with Moore's other studies in the same field, placed him among the first of Dante scholars.
