Works of John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester by John Wilmot Rochester

Book Description

John Wilmot, second Earl of Rochester (1647-80), was a leading member of the group of 'court wits' surrounding Charles II. One of the wittiest and most sexually explicit poets in English, his poems circulated principally in manuscript, which makes the tracing of their transmissional history a peculiarly difficult task. In this long-awaited edition, Harold Love, one of the leading scholars of seventeenth-century manuscript circulation, presents a scholarly text based on detailed examination of the manuscripts, with full textual and explanatory notes. It will be an important contribution to the study of manuscript publication as well as a vital resource for all students of Rochester.
