Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Few scholars bring to the study of rural poetry a working knowledge of modern as well as 18th-century agricultural life. Goodridge writes about his subject as if he knows his sheep and understands the seasons and rhythms of country life....The best book on 18th-century poetry in years. Rigorous enough for period specialists and historians, but accessible to all." Choice

"...(Goodridge) has given fellow scholars an example worth imitating." Modern Philology
