9780198127710: 3: The Poetical Works of Christopher Smart: Volume III: A Translation of the Psalms of David (|c OET |t Oxford English Texts)

This book is a new edition of Christopher Smart's massive verse translation of the Psalms. Alhough the Psalms are much less well-known than his Song to David or Hymns and Spiritual Songs, the translation was intended as the centerpiece of a project devoted to poetically reforming the liturgy. In this work he aimed to meet the demand, expressed by many in the mid-18th century, for a new Anglican metrical psalter for regular use in the divine service written in the `spirit of Christianity'. The editor's introduction and commentary include discussion of the Christianizing tendencies of Smart's Psalm translations, comparison of Smart's methods with those of earlier Psalm versifiers, demonstration of the connections in idea and expression between Smart's Psalms and mid-eighteenth-century Anglican Evangelicalism, and the use in the Translation of New Testament themes and images.

About the Author:

Christopher Smart (1722-1771) was an English poet, whose works include A Song to David and Jubilate Agno, both of which were at least partly written during his confinement in an insane asylum.

Review:


"As with the first two volumes, this one represents another important contribution toward the final goal of the first complete edition of Smart's poetry. His extraordinary translation of the Psalms has at last been given here a careful and scholarly treatment....Highly recommended to any scholar interested in 18th-century British literature."--Choice
