Castrating Rochester: John Wilmot's Manuscript Poetry

This talk by Dr Adam Rounce looks at the peculiarities of the manuscript canon of the poetry of John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester (1647-80), and its examples in the collections at the University of Nottingham, not least the autograph manuscripts of Rochester's poems to his wife, which are more restrained in their expression than most of his writing.
