Product description

The Poems of John Oldham

Harold F Brooks and Raman Selden, eds.

Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1986. Hardback; 165 x 240 mm; dark blue boards with gold titles on spine and front cover; cxii & 592 pages. No dust jacket.

The book is in very good condition but the defects are minimal. The binding is sound. There is a small dog-ear at page xiii/xiv. There is a slight dent on page 18, and a slight chip at the top of page 181/182 near the gutter.

John Oldham (1653 – 1683) was an English satirical poet and translator. Although regarded as a vigorous and passionate satirist, he is often regarded as having been hampered by a poor ear for rhyme and rhythm. He imitated the classical Satires of Juvenal. His best-known works are A Satire Upon a Woman Who by Her Falsehood and Scorn Was the Death of My Friend, written in 1678, and A Satire against Virtue, written in 1679. During his lifetime, his poetry was published anonymously. His translations of Juvenal were published after his death.

This is a scholarly edition of Oldham’s poems and therefore not intended for the general reader.
