A Modernized Edition of the Complete Poems of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey.
|Author: ||McGaw, William|
This new modern edition of the complete poems of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, is based on the author's previous 2012 work: A Critical Edition of the Complete Poems of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey. The first complete modernized edition of Surrey's poetry since George Nott's 1815 edition (The Works of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey and of Sir Thomas Wyatt), it presents a contemporary text in which the poems have been structured for 21st century reader.
"This edition will make the works of this very important poet accessible to a new generation of students and poetry enthusiasts. It is sensitively and clearly annotated, the text is elegantly presented, and the introduction is lucid and informative. ... McGaw's critical and biographical introduction is model of judicious inclusion, giving main relevant details of Surrey's life and times, and offering a sensitive and exact account of Surrey's literary importance."
