Building on the strength of Keith Walker’s acclaimed The Poems of John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester (1984), leading scholar Nicholas Fisher presents a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the work of one the greatest Restoration wits.

  • Includes the text of Lucina’s Rape, Rochester’s adaptation of Fletcher’s revenge tragedy Valentinian,  in a text that readily identifies Rochester’s revisions
  • Presents the poems in versions that were current during Rochester’s lifetime, allowing the reader to experience the poems as Rochester’s contemporaries did
  • Incorporates insights and discoveries made over the last twenty-five years and texts of manuscripts that previously were unavailable for study

Keywords: 17th Century English Literature, Vallentinian, Valentinian, John Fletcher, Restoration, 17th Century Poetry, Harold Love, Long 18th Century
