Gerrard, Christine.
The Patriot Opposition to Walpole. Politics, Poetry and National Myth, 1725-1742.

Oxford Clarendon Press: 1994.

"This is the first full-length study of the so-called Patriot opposition to the Walpole Administration which reached its height during the clamour for war against Spain at the turn of the 1730s. The book examines the interrelationship between patriotism, politics, and poetry in the period 1725-1742... Drawing on the literature, prints, architecture and statuary of the 1730s Christine Garrard also explores in depth two of the decades most powerful patriotic myths- Saxon or 'Gothic' liberty, and Elizabethan greatness." A surprisingly uncommon book.

Hardcover. 6.5"x9.5", 273 pages, b/w illustrations, dj a nice copy.
