Epithalamiums: An Anthology of Marriage Poems From Chaucer to the Modern Age

Price : $29.75
ISBN # : 9789380607351
Author : Masoodul Hasan & Syed Naqi Husain Jafri
pages: 266
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Primus Books
Published : 2013

Anthologies provide ready, expansive insights into specific forms of literature. In the genre of poetry, nuptial poetry is singularly under-represented. The only extant anthology on nuptial poetry, published in the last decade of the nineteenth century, is now difficult to find, and does not have entries beyond the eighteenth century. The present anthology aims to compensate for this, and offers a comprehensive selection of epithalamic poetry from the fourteenth to the twentieth centuries. Apart from its wide coverage, the anthology also presents, for the first time, an epithalamic extract from Chaucer, and the hitherto uncollected pieces from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, all put together



Author Bio: Syed Naqi Husain Jafri taught English at the Christian College, Lucknow, and Anwar-ul Ulum College, Hyderabad, before joining the Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, which he served for about three decades.

Masoodul Hasan, who has a doctorate from the University of Liverpool, has taught at the Aligarh Muslim University for more than four decades, and served as Chairman of the Department of English and Modern European Languages. He was also the Dean, Faculty of Arts at the same university and retired in 1988.
