The third edition of this successful anthology collects an exceptional range of historical literatures that span the period from the British Civil War to the French Revolution. This volume presents an extensive selection of canonical texts, many reprinted for from their earliest recoverable versions. Challenging the boundaries of eighteenth-century literary studies, this volume also includes many non-canonical works and many works by women writers of the period. Additionally, selections of literature from private and public life, from letters to political ballads, help to illuminate the history and cultural contexts in which the major literary works were created.This new edition includes a number of significant updates. In addition to reintroducing and extending selections from the previous editions and incorporating all new drama selections, new works by major authors have been added, including Pope's Eloisa to Abelard, a portion of Lucy Hutchinson's Order in Disorder, a pamphlet by Reeve and Muggleton, and Rochester's A Ramble in St. James Park. Additionally, timelines, an alternative list of contents by theme, and updated head notes lend added accessibility.About the Author:
