    Abstract:

    “Chaucer’s Ghoast” is an anonymous collection of twelve short poems (one set within a short story in prose) published in London in 1672, and evidently never reprinted since. It has been described as a loose translation of selections from Ovid, and sometimes (e.g. by the NUC) attributed to Charles Cotton (1630-87). Joshua has identified it as a modernization of selections from CA, and reprints ten lines from the two works (from the story of Pygmaleon) to demonstrate the closeness…

    Abstract:

    The picturesque theorists disagree vehemently over whether the picturesque deformity that can be appreciated in buildings and landscapes could also be appreciated in people with deformities, be these people real or represented.

Explains the use of “contextualisation” in the…

    Abstract:

    The “Wellesley Index to Victorian Periodicals” names the radical Scottish journalist William Weir, 1802-1858, as the author of an unsigned series of seven articles, published in Henry Colburn’s “New Monthly Magazine”, entitled “Recollections of a Gottingen Student”, 1829-1830. While the old “Dictionary of National Biography”, which is referenced in “Wellesley”, is silent on the dates of Weir’s time in Gottingen and does not attribute a…
