The Making of Restoration Poetry
Available in Stock
Paul Hammond explores the complex ways in which authors, publishers and readers contributed to the making of Restoration poetry. The essays in Part I deal with aspects of Restoration poetic culture including the poetic canon, censorship, anonymity, intertextuality, classical translation and representations of Charles II; Part II deals with individual poets: the circulation of Dryden's poetry; Richard Flecknoe's Mac Flecknoe; the variant texts of Marvell's To His Coy Mistress; and Rochester and his editors.
