Political Verse in Late Georgian Britain: Poems Referring to William Pitt the Younger (1759-1806)

2004

Abstract

Political verse has been part of political discourse in England since before the invention of printing. It was probably past its peak by the early nineteenth century but still played a significant role in the dissemination of ideas, and provides important evidence regarding contemporary attitudes. This annotated check-list of poems referring to the younger Pitt is prefaced by a brief survey of political verse since the Middle Ages.
