John Dryden was the greatest writer of Restoration England. These volumes are the third and fourth volumes in a five-volume edition of Dryden's poems and result from a complete reappraisal of the canon, text and context of his work. The modernised text has been prepared from a fresh examination of the early printed editions and takes account of the large number of manuscript copies which survived. These volumes cover the poems which Dryden published between 1686-1696. This was a decade which saw the completion of his work of Catholic apologetics, The Hind and the Panther, the major translations from Juvenal and Persius, and his return to the stage after the Revolution of 1688-9 deprived him of the laureateship. Throughout these two new volumes Dryden's language is glossed in unprecedented detail, revealing the poetic precision of his vocabulary. Together with volumes one and two they offer the most informative and accessible edition of Dryden's poetry and provide an invaluable resource for students of Restoratation culture.

From the Back Cover:

The Poems of John Dryden
Volume Three 1686-1693

The poems of John Dryden is a four-volume edition of the poetry of John Dryden (1631-1700) resulting from a complete reappraisal of the canon, the text, and the context of his work. The modernised text is prepared from a fresh examination of early printed editions, and takes account of the large number of surviving manuscripts. The annotation is particularly substantial for the most important poems and a headnote accompanies each one, giving details of its date, circumstances, publication history, sources and contemporary reception.

Volumes One and Two (published in 1995) covered poems published between 1649 and 1685, including his historical poem Annus Mirabilis, his celebrated satires Mac Flecknoe, Absalom and Achitophel, and The Medal, and his sustained meditation on religious faith and authority, Religio Laici.

Volume Three covers poems published between 1686 and 1693, a watershed period which saw Dryden's fall from official favour at the Revolution of 1688-9. A major item in this volume is the Hind and the Panther, Dryden's apologia for his new Roman catholic beliefs. The extensive headnote and annotation to this poem explain its allegorical procedures and subtle theological arguments, while also analysing its use of sources. Another principal inclusion in Volume Three is the Discourse Concerning Satire, Dryden's extended critique of the history and practice of satire - the most substantial and influential essay on the topic in the seventeenth century. The headnote guides the reader through Dryden's somewhat circuitous argument, and the substantial annotation documents the relation of Dryden's text to previous treatments of the subject. This volume also includes a number of important poems prompted by public events and private friendships.

Volume Four covers poems published between 1693 and 1696, principally Dryden's translations from Juvenal and Persius, and those from Ovid and Homer included in the miscellany Examen Poeticum (1693). Extensive but well-focused annotation charts the relationship of Dryden's versions with their originals, with previous translations, and with other works of literature, and alerts readers to a range of contemporary allusions which these poems incorporate. Throughout the volume, careful glossing of Dryden's vocabulary - more extensive than any available hitherto - reveals the imaginative precision of his poetic language.

This new edition represents the most informative and accessible edition of Dryden's poetry, incorporating extensive new research and providing an invaluable resource for students of English poetry and of Restoration culture.
