Building on the strength of Keith Walker's acclaimed The Poems of John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester (1984), leading scholar Nicholas Fisher presents a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the work of one the greatest Restoration wits. It includes the text of Lucina's Rape, Rochester's adaptation of Fletcher's revenge tragedy Valentinian, in a text that readily identifies Rochester's revisions. It presents the poems in versions that were current during Rochester's lifetime and incorporates insights and discoveries made over the last twenty-five years and texts of manuscripts that previously were unavailable for study.
