From the Back Cover:

This wide-ranging Companion reflects the dramatictransformation that has taken place in the study ofeighteenth-century poetry over the past two decades. New essays byleading scholars in the field address an expanded poetic canon thatnow incorporates verse by many women poets and other formerlymarginalized poetic voices. The volume engages with topicalcritical debates such as the production and consumption of literarytexts, the constructions of femininity, sentiment and sensibility,enthusiasm, politics and aesthetics, and the growth ofimperialism.

The Companion opens with a section on contexts, consideringeighteenth-century poetry’s relationships with such topics asparty politics, religion, science, the visual arts, and theliterary marketplace. A series of close readings of specific poemsfollows, ranging from familiar texts such as Pope’s TheRape of the Lock to slightly less well-known works such asSwift’s “Stella” poems and Lady Mary WortleyMontagu’s Town Eclogues. Essays on forms and genres,and a series of more provocative contributions on significantthemes and debates, complete the volume.

The Companion gives readers a thorough grounding in boththe background and the substance of eighteenth-century poetry, andis designed to be used alongside David Fairer and ChristineGerrard’s Eighteenth-century Poetry: An AnnotatedAnthology (Blackwell, second edition, 2004).
