Eighteenth Century English Poetry, Paperback / softback Book

Eighteenth Century English Poetry Paperback / softback


This anthology of 18th-century English poetry is extensively annotated for a new generation of readers.

It combines the scope of a period anthology with the detailed annotations of an authoritative single-author edition.

Selected poets include John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, John Dryden, Jonathan Swift, Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea, Joseph Addison, Alexander Pope and William Cowper.

The guiding principle of the annotation is one of thoroughness: the editors concentrate on works where the meanings have changed, on primary allusions and on relevant details of social and political history.
