9780199556298: The New Oxford Book of Seventeenth-Century Verse (Oxford Books of Prose & Verse)

The seventeenth century was a period of remarkable achievement in the field of English poetry: it was the age of Shakespeare, Donne, Marvell, Jonson, Drayton, Herbert, Dryden, and Rochester among others. Alastair Fowler's celebrated anthology maps the terrain afresh, including innumerable and generous selections from all of the century's masterpieces as well as fascinating work by less familiar names. It strikes a balance between Metaphysical wit and intellect and Jonsonian simplicity, while also accommodating hitherto neglected popular verse. The result is a truer, more catholic representation of seventeenth-century verse than any previous anthology

Review:


"The best thing about this stimulating and enjoyable book is the serendipity of coming across previously unknown delights."--The Economist


"Fowler has cast his net widely, more widely than his predecessors, and to good effect."--London Review of Books


"Well worth putting on your Christmas list, for the sake of the many fine and otherwise neglected poets he has chosen."--The Independent Weekend
