English poetry of the eighteenth century, 1700-1789 by David Fairer ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years the scope of eighteenth-century poetry has greatly expanded beyond the established cannon of Pope, Swift, Gray, Johnson, Goldsmith, Smart and Cowper to include women poets, labouring-class and provincial poets, and many previously unheard voices. [In this book, the author] takes up the challenge this poses to our traditional understanding of the subject. He seeks to question some of the structures, categories and labels that have given the age its reassuring shape in literary history. In doing so he offers a ... look at a wide range of material. This book sets out to integrate the works of lesser known (even "unknown") poets into the bigger picture by engaging them with the established writers. It tests general assumptions by emphasising variety and the individual voice, and by placing poems in their immediate contexts. The result is an eighteenth-century poetic scene that is dynamic, full of energy, and responsive to all the significant developments of the age.-Back cover
