Woudhuysen, University College London Daniel Karlin, University College London This major series provides the student with accessible and authoritative annotated editions of key texts in British and American literature from medieval to modern times.

Already published in this series: Lyrical Ballads, Michael Mason (ed.) Women's Writing in Middle English, Alexandra Barratt (ed.) Thomas Hardy: Selected Poems, Tim Armstrong (ed.) King Lear: A Parallel Text Edition, Rene Weis (ed.) William Cowper: The Task and Selected Other Poems, James Sambrook (ed.) Edmund Spenser: Selected Shorter Poems, Douglas Brooks-Davies (ed.)

Ben Jonson: Four Comedies, Helen Ostovich (ed.) Chaucer's Dream Poetry, Helen Phillips and Nick Havely (eds) Back Flap: This is a new edition of The Dunciad in Four Books of 1743, the culmination of the series of Dunciads which Alexander Pope produced over the last decade and a half of his life. It comprises not only a poem, but also a mass of authorial annotation and appendices, and this new edition is the only one available which gives all the verse and the prose in a clearly laid-out form, with a full modern commentary. Accessibly presented on the same page as Pope¿s text are explanatory notes, written in a clear style adapted to the needs of undergraduate readers, but full enough to address the interests of scholars. For the first time, the prose sections - an integral part of the work - have been annotated as fully as the verse. The many books and pamphlets to which Pope refers have been examined in detail, and the commentary takes advantage of the fifty years¿ scholarship on literary, bibliographical, cultural and political aspects of the period which has accumulated since James Sutherland¿s The Dunciad, volume five of the Twickenham Edition. A substantial introduction offers a stimulating and helpful approach to the work, and the bibliography includes suggestions for further reading. Front Flap: Valerie Rumbold is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Birmingham. She has published a range of articles on Pope and on eighteenth-century women writers. Her book Women¿s Place in Pope¿s World (1989) was awarded the Rose Mary Crawshay Prize by the British Academy.Pope, Alexander is the author of 'Dunciad in Four Books' with ISBN 9780582089242 and ISBN 0582089247.
