Omtale: A Companion to Eighteenth-Century Poetry
This broad-ranging Companion offers readers a thorough grounding in both the background and the substance of eighteenth-century poetry in all its rich variety. * Provides an up-to-date and wide-ranging guide to eighteenth-century poetry * Reflects the dramatic transformation which has taken place in the study of eighteenth-century poetry over the past two decades * Opens with a section on contexts, discussing poetry s relationships with patriotism, politics, science, and the visual arts, for example * Discusses poetry by male and female poets from all walks of life * Includes numerous close readings of individual poems, ranging from Pope s The Rape of the Lock to Mary Collier s The Woman s Labour * Includes more provocative contributions on subjects such as rural poetry and the self-taught tradition, British poetry 'beyond the borders', the constructions of femininity, women as writers and women as readers. * Designed to be used alongside David Fairer and Christine Gerrard s Eighteenth-Century Poetry: An Annotated Anthology, 3rd edition (Wiley Blackwell, 2014)
