Robert Herrick has long been one of the best loved of English lyric poets. Known through the centuries as the author of 'Gather ye rosebuds', he also wrote, as this new edition shows, hundreds of songs, epigrams and longer poems equally worthy of attention. Volume I of this new edition of Herrick's work contains Hesperides, Herrick's only published collection. As well as the commentary on Hesperides, volume II contains the fifty-nine surviving manuscript poems which can be firmly attributed to Herrick, and on which his reputation was based before 1648. It is an ambitious and original attempt to recover for the first time the history of Herrick's corpus of manuscript poetry, and to identify how his poems circulated, and who his copyists and readers were. By establishing the type of sources to which they had access and the nature and quality of the poems these sources contained, and through the histories of transmission that accompany every poem, this volume offers a significant body of evidence that deepens our critical understanding not only of Herrick's poetry, but of the mechanics of scribal publication and the culture of reading, writing and performing poetry and music in early modern England. Where, as is often the case, a musical setting survives this is also printed, along with a commentary on the setting, in a form which is designed to encourage the performance of the lyrics.

About the Author:


Tom Cain is Professor Emeritus of Early Modern Literature at Newcastle University. He has worked on Herrick for many years, but has also written a study of Tolstoy (1977), and edited Nicholas Hilliard's Art of Limning (1981). His Revels Plays edition of Jonson's Poetaster (1995) was followed by an edition of the manuscript poems left by Herrick's patron, Mildmay Fane, Earl of Westmorland (2001). He has written several essays on Donne and Jonson, and has just edited Jonson's Sejanus for the Cambridge Works of Ben Jonson (2012).
Ruth Connolly is Lecturer in Seventeenth-Century Literature at Newcastle University. Her current work focusses on the circulation of Stuart lyric poetry in manuscript, and on early modern women's writing, especially by members of on the Boyle family, Katherine Boyle Jones, Viscountess Ranelagh (1614-91) and Mary Boyle Rich, Countess of Warwick (1624-1678.

Review:


"Cain and Connolly provide a full original spelling text in volume 1 and a thorough commentary in volume 2, allowing readers possessed of sufficient lap or desk space to read the two side by side. They have undertaken substantial work on the printing of the book, and give an authoritative account of its publication. Their notes are the fullest and most helpful annotations on which readers of Herrick have ever been able to draw. Indeed, across these two volumes, the editors have managed both to better their predecessors' achievements as readers of Herrick's printed book, while also permitting us to see a full and detailed picture of his work as it circulated through other media and forms. The result is a singular edition that rivals Hesperides itself in its undaunting monumentality." --James Loxley, Renaissance Quarterly
