The complete critical guide to Alexander Pope by Paul Baines( )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What can a study of Pope tell us about the eighteenth century? Was Pope the poet of reason, or an anti-establishment prophet? So many questions surround the key figures in the English literary canon, but most books focus on one aspect of an author's life or work, or limit themselves to a single critical approach. The Complete Critical Guide to Alexander Pope is part of a unique series of comprehensive, user-friendly introductions which: offer basic information on an author's life, contexts, and works ; outline the major critical issues surrounding the author's works, from the time they were written to the present ; leave judgments up to you, by explaining the full range of often very different critical views and interpretation ; offer guides to further reading in each area discussed. This series has a broad focus but one very clear aim: to equip you with al lthe knowledge you need to make your own new readings of crucial literary texts. -- Book cover

"Surveys the social and cultural matrices of British literature of the period 1660-1790.

The collected writings of Edward Rushton (1756-1814) by Edward Rushton( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The edition brings together the known writings in poetry and prose of Edward Rushton (1756-1814). Blinded by trachoma after an outbreak on the slaving ship in which he was a young officer, Rushton returned to Liverpool to scratch a living as a publican, newspaper editor, and finally bookseller and publisher. In his day Rushton was a well-known Liverpool poet and reformer, with an impressively wide range of causes (the Liverpool Blind School, the Liverpool Marine Society, and many radical political groups). Many of his songs, particularly the marine ballads, were very familiar in Britain and America. In the later Victorian period, as a particular version of romanticism began to dominate literary sensibilities, Rushton's overt politics fell from favour and he became rather obscure, at least by comparison with his like-minded (but much better off) friend William Roscoe. As the history of slavery abolition and other radical causes has come to be re-examined, the bicentenary of Rushton's death, falling in November 2014, has suggested an opportunity to take a new look at his remarkable career and impressive body of work. There has never been a critical edition of Rushton's poems. His own 1806 edition omits much, including what is his best-known work in modern times, the anti-slavery 'West-Indian Eclogues' of 1787; the posthumous 1824 edition omits much from the 1806 collection while drawing in other work. The present edition reproduces the works from the earliest datable sources, in newspapers, chapbooks, periodicals, and broadsides, providing a clean text with significant revisions and variants noted in the commentary. Unfamiliar words are glossed, and brief introductions and contextual commentaries, informed by the latest scholarship, are given for each piece of writing. -- Publisher's description
