Voice and Context in Eighteenth-Century Verse free pdf This collection of essays is a reassessment of the importance of verse as a medium in the long eighteenth century, and as an invitation for readers to explore many of the less familiar figures dealt with, alongside the received names of the standard criticism of the period. The volume is intended both to open new areas of research for fellow academics and to help revitalize the study of eighteenth-century verse for a student readership. Above all, the book seeks to strip this period form of the accretions of solid respectability it acquired during earlier centuries and to allow it to speak to current readers with some of the directness of the original texts.
