The Life of John Dryden
University of North Carolina Press, 1961 - 380 sivua
This book fills the need for a complete, accurate, and impartial reexamination of Dryden's life and career as poet, dramatist, and man of letters. By examining the numerous autobiographical passages that Dryden inserted in his writings and by interpreting these in the light of Dryden's relationships with persons and contemporary situations, the author disproves some long-accepted explanations of Dryden's conduct.
