Abstract:
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, now known chiefly for her letters, was in her own day famous as a minor poet. This thesis discusses her verse in various genres, relating it to the conventions within which it was written and to the writer's particular interests and aims. It prints the text of all known verse by, or probably by, Lady Mary, with full textual apparatus and explanatory notes. As far as possible all manuscript and printed sources have been collated, their variants recorded, the poems dated, their origins explained, and parallels in other writers listed.
