Arthur Woollgar Verrall (1851–1912) was a renowned British classical and literary scholar. First published in 1914, this book presents content derived from a series of lectures given by Verrall during October and November 1911, marking his appointment as King Edward VII Professor of English Literature at Cambridge University. The text focuses on various aspects of Dryden's writings and his age, revealing 'the importance of his work in the development of English prose and verse, and its comparative neglect among the younger lovers of literature'. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Dryden and the works of Verrall.
