About the Author:

D. K. Money, British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow; Senior Research Fellow, Wolfson College, Cambridge.

Review:

`a scholarly monograph produced in the context of the British Academy's postdoctoral fellowship scheme ... a powerful reminder of how important Latin was to English poets ... There is some interest ... in the exploration, done with meticulous and impressive scholarship, of the byways of English literary life as represented by Alsop's numerous and more-or-less distinguished friends.' Keith Mitchell, The Tablet

learned book ... A figure who attracted such praise deserves to be the subject of Money's meticulous research

`It is Money's achievement to rescue Alsop ... from ... recent oversight.' J.C.D. Clark, Royal Stuart Review, 2000.

`This is a learned monograph interpreting Alsop and providing an edition and translation of his work, but it ranges more widely to examine the Latin tradition from the early seventeenth century to Thomas Gray and Samuel Johnson in the late eighteenth-century. It offers a view of the wider place of Latin in eighteenth-century English culture. Above all, it provides a new point of access into many themes in the political and social history of England in this era. It is the sort of book that will create for itself its own readership.' J.C.D. Clark, Royal Stuart Review, 2000.

`Dr Money provides beginners-and in this case there will be few readers who do not fall into that category - with invaluable guidance. The details of Alsop's life and contacts are fully presented, the verbal and metrical accomplishments of his verse are expertly displayed, his allusions to classical literature and contemporary events are meticulously documented, and the continuities and differences between his work and that of other British Latin poets are usefully identified. ... Alsop thus seems to me to be more aptly described as an interesting minor figure than as 'one of Britain's major poets'. But the great virtue of The English Horace - for which we should all feel grateful - is that it provides modern readers, for the first time, with all the material they need to decide the issue for themselves.' David Hopkins, March 2001
