9781405835459: Dryden:Selected Poems

Dryden: Selected Poems is drawn from Paul Hammond and David Hopkins's remarkable five-volume The Poems of John Dryden, and includes a generous selection of his most important work. The great satires, MacFlecknoe and Absalom and Achitophel, are included in full, as are his religious poemsReligio Laici and The Hind and the Panther, along with a number of Dryden's translations from Horace, Ovid, Homer, and Chaucer.

Each poem is accompanied by a headnote, which gives details of composition, publication, and reception. The first-rate annotations provide information on matters of interpretation and give details of allusions that might prove baffling to contemporary readers. Some 300 years after his death, Dryden: Selected Poems will enable new generations of readers to discover the poet of whom Eliot wrote: 'we cannot fully enjoy or rightly estimate a hundred years of English poetry unless we fully enjoy Dryden'.

From the Back Cover:

John Dryden (1631-1700) was the dominant literary figure of his age. His reputation today rests primarily on his poetic output, but he was also a significant literary critic and dramatist. His wide-ranging poetry engages with the turbulent political, religious, and literary life of Restoration England, and also includes a magnificent series of creative translations.  Dryden's influence in his lifetime and in the centuries that followed should not be underestimated and he remains one of the very greatest of the English poets.

Dryden: Selected Poems is drawn from Paul Hammond and David Hopkins's remarkable five-volume The Poems of John Dryden and includes a generous selection of his most important work. The great satires, MacFlecknoe and Absalom and Achitophel, are included in full, as are his religious poems Religio Laici and The Hind and the Panther, along with a number of Dryden's translations from Horace, Ovid, Homer, and Chaucer. Each poem is accompanied by a headnote, which gives details of composition, publication, and reception.

Some 300 years after his death, Dryden: Selected Poems will enable new generations of readers to discover the poet of whom Eliot wrote: 'we cannot fully enjoy or rightly estimate a hundred years of English poetry unless we fully enjoy Dryden'.

David Hopkins is Professor of English Literature at the University of Bristol, and author of several studies of Dryden; he recently co-edited volume 3 (1660-1790) of The Oxford History of Literary Translation in English (2005).
