Of all the poets of the Augustan age, John Dryden was the most worldly. Anthony Fowles traces Dryden's evolution from 'wordsmith' to major poet.

This critical study shows a poet of vigour and technical panache whose art was forged in the heat of battle of a turbulent polemical and pamphleteering age. Although Dryden's status as a literary critic has long been established, Fowles draws attention to Dryden's neglected achievements as a translator of poetry. He deals also with the less well-known aspects of Dryden's work - his plays and occasional pieces.

 

About the author:

Born in London and educated at the Universities of Oxford and Southern California, Anthony Fowles has completed studies of Joseph Heller and Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea for Greenwich Exchange. He is also a writer of fiction, biography and literary criticism.
