From Library Journal:

John Dryden is the most important literary figure of the Restoration as well as one of England's greatest "occasional" poets. Curiously, little is known about his private life or opinions, as his works (celebratory odes, plays, didactic prose, etc.) betray little of the private man. Winn's ambitious biography draws together what is known about Dryden's life from public records, reminiscences of friends and contemporaries, and sparse revelations in the works. Other good biographies have been published, but few have captured Dryden's era so well. Winn's scholarship is excellent, and the book is augmented by detailed notes and documentation to encourage further study. Unfortunately, Winn is no stylist, and the book can be dry and somewhat dull; nevertheless, highly recommended for all academic libraries. James Stephenson, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
