Christopher Smart.
Anderson, Frances E.
This book is designed as an introduction to Christopher Smart's poetry for the general reader, the college student, and the college teacher. The political, social, and literary background of eighteenth-century England is examined in the first part of this volume. The second part concerns itself with Smart's life and the factors affecting his career as a poet. The last and largest section contains a critical evaluation of Christopher Smart's poetry, arranged chronologically, with special emphasis on the "Song to David." Some discussion is included on his prose published in periodicals, and there are a few general comments concerning his prose and verse translations. (LL)
