CONTENTS; PREFACE; ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS; CHAPTER I; CHAPTER II; CHAPTER III; CONCLUDING REMARKS; WORKS CITED; APPENDIX
This book examines the Laureateship as an exponent of complex relations between literature and the Monarchy, and defines the nature and mode of existence of laureate poetry in England from the Restoration up to the present day. With the Monarchy seen as a long-lasting foundation of Englishness, the institution of Poet Laureateship provides a symbolic component of national identity, an official link between literature, culture and the Monarchy.
