Description: -- This is the result of a complete reappraisal of the canon, text and context of John Dryden's poetry!

-- Features Dryden's translations from Juvenal, Persius and those from Ovid and Homer included in the miscellany Examen Poeticum.

-- Modernized text, headnotes and extensive annotations make Dryden's poetry more understandable and puts it in contemporary context, explaining motive and style.

The Poems of John Dryden - Volume 4 is published in the Longman Annotated English Poets series in a four volume edition which examines all the poetry of Dryden (1631-1700) and is the result of a complete reappraisal of the canon, the text and the context of his work. The modernized text is prepared from a fresh examination of early printed editions, and takes account of the large number of surviving manuscripts. The annotation is particularly substantial for the most important poems and a headnote accompanies each one, giving details of its date, circumstances, publication history, sources and contemporary reception. Volume 4 covers the poems published between 1693 and 1696. Important poetry covered includes Dryden's translations from Juvenal, Persius and those from Ovid and Homer included in the miscellany Examen Poeticum(1693). Extensive but well focused annotation charts the relationship of Dryden's versions with their originals, with previous translations, and with other works of literature, and alerts the readers to a range of contemporary allusions. Throughout the volume, careful glossing of Dryden's vocabulary reveals the imaginative precision of his poetic language.
