Reliques of Ancient English Poetry, Volym 1
Routledge/Thoemmes Press, 1996 - 1316 sidor
The Reliques is a collection of ballads, songs, romances and historical poetry, annotated with Percy's literary-antiquarian observations. It is a seminal text in English literature, one that profoundly influenced writers from Thomas Chatterton to Wordsworth, Coleridge and Keats and the Pre-Raphaelites. Until now, the first edition has not been available to scholars of the eighteenth century and British and European Romanticism. A superb example of period publishing, it includes scarce proofsheets, excluded from the original edition, as well as new critical and bibliographical introduction.

A very famous collection that contributed largely to the fashion for balads and ultimately t the Romantic movement. It is a mixed bag, some genuinely early, some not, but important for its influence. Läs hela recensionen
