Reviews

"Were [this] book published for no other reason than to bring Rowe's poetry back into print, that alone would suffice. . . . We are in Professor Marshall's debt for pulling out of oblivion a poet once greatly admired by the likes of Samuel Johnson, Isaac Watts, and Matthew Prior. . . . [A] fascinating addition to, or re-entry into, our canon of late seventeenth-century and early eighteenth-century literature . . . ." - Christianity and Literature

". . . presents a wide selection of Rowe's poetry, unavailable in twentieth-century editions, as well as a monograph-length introduction which seeks to place the poet's work in a historical context. . . . [Marshall] has rendered a significant service." - The Scriblerian
