Review:

" Eighteenth–Century Poetry: An Annotated Anthology is simply the best or even the only eighteenth–century poetry anthology to use in undergraduate and graduate survey courses. The annotation is rich and detailed, the headnotes and introductory matter are superb and the selections wisely chosen. This is an edition that I treasure." John Richetti, University of Pennsylvania


"This is one of those rare books that reshapes and reanimates a field of inquiry. Fairer and Gerrard know their subject as well as anyone, and this anthology gives us all the benefit of their erudition, insight and critical tact." John Sitter, Emory University

"The volume, handsomely produced, is annotated economically, with a sure instinct for what a reader will find puzzling, whilst the head notes are compact, informative and lucid. The balance of the famous and the obscure is perfectly struck." English Studies

From the Back Cover:

Eighteenth–Century Poetry: An Annotated Anthology reveals the rich variety of poetry produced in the period 1700 1800. The work of traditionally prominent authors, such as Alexander Pope, Jonathan Swift, Robert Burns and William Cowper, is presented alongside pieces by lesser–known writers, particularly women, including Anna Laetitia Barbauld, Mary Jones, Ann Yearsley, Sarah Egerton and Mary Collier. All the poems have full foot–of–page annotations and generous headnotes.

For the second edition, the political and satirical content of the anthology has been strengthened, with the inclusion of poems such as Charles Churchill s Night, Samuel Johnson s London and Swift s A Satirical Elegy on a Late Famous General. The revised edition also features work by two new women poets, Martha Fowke and Sarah Dixon. The editors continue to draw out interesting links between the poems, and especially between male and female poets.
