A new selection of Rochester's famously explicit verse, that goes beyond its popular reputation for pornographic or vitriolic directness to bring out the variety and sophistication of his work. Includes only poems now securely established as Rochester's, in modern spelling. Uses texts not based on the posthumous and unreliable printed editions but on the most authoritative manuscripts which circulated in Rochester's lifetime, making it the most reliable edition available. Texts of the poems Rochester translated and imitated are included in the notes, enabling readers to explore his creatively intricate involvement with the work of his ancient and modern counterparts, a crucial aspect of the poet's genius. Introduction examines issues of attribution and manuscript circulation and situates Rochester within a larger intellectual movement of libertinism. Full notes help readers unfamiliar with Restoration usage to understand meaning and the subtler connotations of words and phrases. Index of Manuscripts. 'If I by miracle can be This livelong minute true to thee 'Tis all that heav'n allows.' The Earl of Rochester was England's first celebrity poet, a byword for the theatricality, licentiousness, and scepticism of the Restoration age. But his scandalous reputation belies the variety and sophistication of his work: his love poems set new standards not only of sexual explicitness but also of psychological acuity and lyric grace, while his satires broke new ground as much by the refinement of their ironies as in the brutality of their invective. A fascinatingly contradictory figure, Rochester emerges more clearly than ever from this new edition, the first selection of his work in modern spelling to take account of recent revolutionary advances in textual scholarship. It includes only poems now securely attributed to the poet, in texts based not on the posthumous and unreliable printed editions but on the most authoritative manuscripts which circulated in his lifetime. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
