  • Includes the text of Lucina's Rape, Rochester's adaptation of Fletcher's revenge tragedy Valentinian, in a text that readily identifies Rochester's revisions
  • Presents the poems in versions that were current during Rochester's lifetime, allowing the reader to experience the poems as Rochester's contemporaries did
  • Incorporates insights and discoveries made over the last twenty-five years and texts of manuscripts that previously were unavailable for study
