Overview

A revisionist history of early 18th-century poetry which shows that many of the Whig writers frequently attacked as hacks and dunces by Alexander Pope and John Dryden - such as Joseph Addison, John Dennis, Thomas Tickell, and Richard Blackmore - were in fact successful and popular in their own time.
