Beschreibung:

History and terminology; 1494-1640 - translating into print; Marvell etc - genre, religion and modes of reading; 1680-1780 - the dislike of dubiety; a philosophy of moonshine - Coleridge, memory and imagination; 1810-1918 - reassertions of human scale (Burke, Sterne, Cobbett, Byron, Browning, Arnold, Hopkins, Owen); in eliot's penumbra - time and absence; 1942- - the modern range; definitions and theses (methodologies, histories, psychologies)
Dr Johnson and whole hosts of grammarians disapproved of parentheses, but for countless poets they have been essential to their work. John Lennard provides a history of the poetic use of lunulae (the marks of parentheses) from their first appearance in England in 1494 to the present day, and shows how in each period the patterns of literary use have reflected technological, philosophical, and political developments.
