About the Author:

David Hopkins is also a contributor to France, ed., Oxford Guide to Literature in English Translation (Feb. 2000)

Review:

`a splendid celebration. Highly recommended.'
G.R.Wasserman, Choice, April 2001

`as Hammond writes in an introductory essay to this commemorative volume, Dryden wrote not only for his age, but for all time. To appreciate the classic Dryden, then, modern readers need to be aware of the past and present worlds evoked in his works, and also of their reception both by his
contemporary and later readers. The 12 thoughtfully commissioned essays presented here provide convincing proof of Hammond's claim.'
Choice, Vol. 38, No. 8, April 2001

`Three hundred years after his death Dryden has been well served by those scholars devoted to his works.'
Contemporary Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This volume is designed to celebrate and re-assess the work of John Dryden (1631-1700) in the tercentenary year of his death. It assembles specially-commissioned essays by an international team of scholars who address Dryden s political writing, drama, and translations, his literary collaborations, contemporary reputation, and posthumous reception. Much of Dryden s work was written in response to contemporary events and issues, and several of the essays in this volume discuss the personal and public circumstances in which his works were composed and received, exploring his responses to popular politics, and his relations with Congreve, Milton, Purcell, and Shadwell. But Dryden s intellectual and imaginative world was also shaped by the work of his literary predecessors, and so the collection charts his creative engagement with classical poetry, especially Homer and Virgil. Other essays attend to his poetic self-representation, his philosophical vision, and the problem of editing Dryden s poetry for a modern readership. The collection as a whole presents him as a writer not only for an age, but for all time. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198186441
