By John Wilmot, H. Frank Ellis
Whereas residing a lifetime of reckless debauchery and sexual adventuring, Rochester produced comedian verse, scurrilous satires, and hugely specific erotica. His chosen Works, edited via Frank H. Ellis and now to be had from Penguin Classics, express him to be one of many wittiest and most complicated poets of the 17th century. With never-ending literary disguises, rhymes and alliteration, humor and humanity, Rochester's poems delay a reflect to the extravagances and absurdities of his age.
