Book Description

Arthur Hobsin Quinn, History of American Drama From the Civil War to the Present Time, New York: Appleton-Century-Croft, 1927.
"A one-act tragedy of exquisite pathos and of telling dramatic effect."

Book Description
This compelling one-act tragedy in blank verse is based on the final hours of the life of poet Thomas Chatterton (1752-1770). Lacy skillfully wove what factual strands he could discover about Chatterton's life with creations of his own mind to construct this seamless romantic tragedy. One of the highlights of the play is a sonnet of Lacy's creation, rather than Chatterton's. A Boston critic wrote, "Finding nothing in the works of Chatterton that would be suited to give as it were, the whole secret of that fate-riven, yearning soul in so few lines, Mr. Lacy was moved to write the...

Book Description
The revival of interest in medieval life and literature during the 18th century led to a fanatical search for antiquarian literary treasures - forgers such as James Macpherson, William Henry Ireland and Thomas Chatterton provided them to their willing and eager patrons. Chatterton wrote on scraps of old parchment and posed it as the work of Thomas Rowley and others. The publication of Thomas Tyrwhitt's first collection of Rowley poems in 1777 gave rise to a heated literary controversy regarding their authenticity. This is a collection of the major contemporary contributions to this controversy, all of which are extremely rare.

Fictions and Fakes: Forging Romantic Authenticity, 1760-1845
Margaret Russett

January 2006
Hardcover

Book Description
British Romantic literature descends from a line of impostors, forgers and frauds. Beginning with the golden age of forgery in the late eighteenth century and continuing through canonical Romanticism and its aftermath, Margaret Russett demonstrates how Romantic writers distinguished their fictions from the fakes surrounding them. The book includes works by Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Walter Scott, John Clare, and James Hogg, as well as chapters on impostors in popular culture. Russett's interdisciplinary and wide-ranging study offers a major reinterpretation of Romanticism and its continuing influence in the present.
