Summary
"In survey of English writing from 1650 to 1720, Milton to Pope explores the multiplicity of what one ballad writer called 'this scribbling age'. Beginning with a sampler of disparate texts, this book explores contexts for interpretation, clearly exemplifying the advantages of moving beyond anthology selections to look closely at details in earlier printed books." "Among questions raised are how the 'period' looks from the perspective of the late seventeenth century and from our own time." "There are major chapters on poetry, drama, and prose, and recurrent emphasis on what is to be learned from details of earlier printing practices or manuscript circulation."--Jacket
