Product description

Of the glittering, licentious court around King Charles II, John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester, was the most notorious. Simultaneously admired and vilified, he personified the rake-hell. Libertine, profane, promiscuous, he shocked his pious contemporaries with his doubts about religion and his blunt verses that dealt with sex or vicious satiric assaults on the high and mighty of the court. This account of Rochester and his times provides the facts behind his legendary reputation as a rake and his deathbed repentance. However, it also demonstrates that he was a loving if unfaithful husband, a devoted father, a loyal friend, a serious scholar, a social critic, and an aspiring patriot. An Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Rochester, James William Johnson is the author or editor of nine books and many articles treating British and American Literature.

Product description

Atheist, hedonist, man of many disguises, the life and wit of John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, was inspiration for several of the most compelling young rakes on the Restoration stage. He was the brightest star at the court of Charles II and, as this volume demonstrates, a sardonic courtier-poet. This edition contains verse-tragedy and prose comedy, translations, panegyrics and epigrams, as well as the songs and satires attributed to Rochester. Frank H. Ellis has edited the text to bring out the richness of Rochester's language and cadence, and he provides notes, a glossary and a biographical dictionary.

New "Re-Animator meets The Confidential matter History in this Tale of Sex and Science Henry Milliner thinks his days of being the school pariah are over forever when he attracts the attention of Wadham College's coolest Suitor Commonser, St John Clement, the Lord Calipash. St John is everything Henry isn't: Brilliant, graceful, rich, universally respected. And as if that wasn't enough, St John is also the numero uno of the Blithe Company, the clique of Natural Philosophy majors who rule Wadham with style. But when being St John's protege ends up becoming a weirder experience than Henry anticipated-and the Delighted Company doesn't quite turn out to be the decadent, debauched crew he dreamed of-Henry has some big decisons to make. Should he beg the forgiveness of his only soul mate, naive underclassman John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester, or should he ride it out with St John and try to come out on top? " This is a print-on-demand title.

The present moment's all my lot
The present moment's all my lot
All my past life is mine no more, The flying hours are gone, Like transitory dreams given o'er, Whose images are kept in store By memory alone. What ever is to come is not, How can it then be mine? The present moment's all my lot, And that as fast as it is got, Phyllis, is wholly thine. Then talk not of inconstancy, False hearts, and broken vows, Ii, by miracle, can be, This live-long minute true to thee, 'Tis all that heaven allows. poem by John Wilmot texture by Skeletalmess
