"In Enchanted Ground, Jayne Lewis and Maximillian E. Novak have brought together many of the world's experts on Dryden, and their essays reflect a range of new, distinctly twenty-first-century views of him. The book is divided into two sections.

The second part considers Dryden's relationship to the theatrical arts and music and his connection to the literary past."--Jacket." ;
