English Literature Of The Late Seventeenth Century

£13.99

Product description

Slight wear to top of dust jacket with light marking on front and rear. Top of pages dust marked but otherwise in very good condition and tightly bound to spine.

Published in 1969, by Oxford at the Clarendon Press

An in depth account of the writing of the period starting with the backdrop of the time and covering diverse fields from journals through to philosophy and economics. From the blurb: "This volume deals with what is often called the age of Dryden. Dryden, as the greatest poet and critic of the Restoration Period and one of its leading dramatists, has been given fuller treatment here than any other writer. But this was also the age of Bunyan, of Halifax and Locke, of Boyle and Newton. And the period is unusually rich in writers just short of the highest rank - the dramatists Etherege, Shadwell, Wycherley, Otway, Lee, and Congreve ; the preachers Barrow, South, and Tillotson ; the historians Clarendon and Burnet; Samuel Butler, Charles Cotton and Rochester among the poets; and miscellaneous writers like Evelyn and Pepys, Aubrey, Cowley and Sir William Temple. The three longest chapters - two on the drama and one on religion - will show where the main emphasis of this curiously divided period really fell ; but due weight is given to the historians and biographers, the essayists and journalists, the men of science, the poets, the politicians, the writers of fiction, and lastly - in this critical and controversial age - the critics."
