Lovers, Rakes & Rogues: A New Garner of Love-Songs & Merry Verses, 1580 to 1830
John Wardroper (ed. & intro.). Contains 330 amatory, merry & bawdy verse from 1580 to 1830 collected, introduced & annotated by Wardroper. The love-songs & merry verses of past centuries are the most appealing part of Britainís lyrical heritage, but much of this material has been left in obscurity. Many of them have not appeared in print for two centuries or more. Some are from rare manuscripts & have never been in print. They are the creation of all classes, from the court & the theaters down to the taverns & the haunts of criminals. With wit, robust humor, passion & pathos they illuminate 250 years of British life, from Shakespeareís time to the eve of Queen Victoria. They are a rich source of the evolving language as it was spoken & sung (with contributions from Scotland & Ireland).
