"Christopher Smart is poised to become a major focus for those interested in Britain's eighteenth-century poets. In this new collection, an impressive group of critics and literary scholars reappraises Smart's legacy and his remarkable impact on twentieth-century poetry. This volume offers a finely historicized approach to Smart's work, highlighting the markedly transitional quality of the eighteenth-century moment as regards the Enlightenment project and thus pointing - through the work of Smart - to a more subtle eighteenth century than is often found in debates about "modernity" and "postmodernity," or "rationality" and "madness." Christopher Smart and the Enlightenment also analyzes the generative impact of Smart on modern poetry and music, demonstrating the reach of Smart's contemporary resonance. Such a tracing of Smart's twentieth-century presence enables a significant chapter of literary history to be rewritten."--Jacket.
