From the Publisher
"Reading this wonderful book is akin to sitting in on a master-class seminar taught by a sensitive, affable teacher who is also a rigorous and respected scholar. Sitter (Notre Dame) covers his subject with enthusiasm, erudition, and an adroit sense of audience. His lessonsarranged in a series of brief, full chaptersare accessible but not condescending. Brimming with insights, they will assist the novice student while offering a variety of valuable tips to even the seasoned teacher. . . Not to be missed by anyone interested in 18th-century poetry. Highly recommended."
"It is the work of a distinguished scholar, covering a wide range of authors in a manner partly designed for nonspecialist readers, with occasional lurches into trade jargon which will momentarily leave some specialists scratching their heads."
