About the Author

Michael Edson is assistant Professor in the English department at the University of Wyoming.


[This] volume offers a persuasive brief for the scholarly need to look again at the history of verse annotation during the eighteenth century and the various roles it has played in publication history. [Michael Edson] treats the relations of footnote and endnote, of paratextual supplement and freestanding elaboration, with admirable clarity and subtlety. . . . In ranging across the history of British verse from Chaucer to Burns, the collection offers the broader literary community insight into both the history of verse annotation and also, surprisingly, the great deal that verse annotation can teach us about the history of poetic form. -- Tim Erwin, Professor of English, University of Nevada
