Eighteenth-Century Poetry by David Fairer Eighteenth-Century Poetry, Paperback (November 2014)

Currently the definitive text in the field and now available in an expanded third edition, Eighteenth-Century Poetry presents the rich diversity of English poetry from 1700-1800 in authoritative texts and with full scholarly annotation.

Organising Poetry by David Fairer Organising Poetry, Hardback (June 2009)

Writing their early poetry during the 1790s, a decade of European revolution, Coleridge, Wordsworth and their friends have always been thought of as 'the First-Generation Romantics'. This book challenges that concept by viewing them from an entirely new perspective as poets who were continuing an eighteenth-century 'organic' tradition.
