The English Ode from Milton to Keats

Front Cover
Columbia University Press, 1940 - 314 pages
Examines the English ode as it was written during the period extending from the middle of the seventeenth century to the middle of the nineteenth century and considers the development of the form and uses to which it was put by writers who varied considerably in outlook, inspiration, and ability in order to present a history of the English ode, to consider the special values of the form, and to weigh the effect ode writing had upon the prosody of lyric verse.
