"This is an edition of all the known poems of Mark Akenside, the eighteenth-century English poet and physician, whose poetry has not been newly edited for more than a century. This edition will thus provide scholars and students with a much-needed opportunity to reassess the extent of Akenside's contribution to literary culture, and it will also clarify his role in the development of the aesthetic theories of his own generation and the one that followed." "The career of Mark Akenside (1721-70) spans a period of extraordinarily fast change in English literature: his first major poem, The Pleasures of Imagination, appeared in the year of Pope's death; and Akenside died in the year Wordsworth was born. His works not only reflected the very considerable changes that took place during these years; they also contributed in many ways to the shifts in focus, interest, and emphasis that characterize the literature of the later eighteenth century."

"Three poets of sensibility, each highly esteemed and hugely influential in his time, are brought together in this single volume, the first representative selection to appear in many decades."--BOOK JACKET. "Mark Akenside (1721-70) wrote Pleasures of the Imagination, described by Dr Johnson as 'an example of the great felicity of genius'. James Macpherson (1736-96) wrote the alleged translations from the Gaelic of the poet Ossian, the seminal literary forgery of the century which agitated critics for generations after and helped popularise Celtic myth. Edward Young (1683-1765) remains the best-known of the three; his Night Thoughts, published in the 1740s, were popular throughout Europe for a century and contributed as did the work of the other two - to the rise of Romanticism."--BOOK JACKET
