Full Description


Rochester, incontestably the greatest of the Restoratoin Poets and reprobrates, is presented in "Debt to Pleasure" both in his own words and in the words of those who loved and loathed him. The book is a mosaic in which the poet's voice and the voice of his age sound with a startling, ribald and riotous clarity.
