    One Reply to “The Cavalier Poets: An Anthology”

    1. This is a nice introduction to four minor poets who cleverly reconciled conflicted morals. The conceits are often quite witty, and there are several clever deferential allusions to the Silver Poet John Donne. Robert Herrick's description of Kisses Loathsome is great fun. I find the frequent enjambment more annoying that the rhymes which I think are subtly maintained. It's also nice to locate the sources for a number of commonly quoted verses.

    2. The Cavaliers are great lyric poets. I'm not as much a fan of some of their longer poems, but they are masters of the lyric. What the Cavaliers tend to do really well is write poetry that is subtly risque, not overtly obscene (in the way some Restoration poetry is), but naughty enough to be good fun while still being subtle.

    3. I'm not as impressed with this book of poetry as I probably should be. Much of it is a little too pansy-bland for my taste. Some of the forced rhyme schemes are a bit nauseating.
