Book DescriptionEighteenth-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.
