(p.1) 1 Introduction
The Making of Percy's Reliques

Nick Groom

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. This three-volume collection of ballads, songs, sonnets, and romances is one of the finest examples of the antiquarian tendency in later 18th century English poetry. This book explores Percy's research work for his book and explains his working method to show how his methodological assumptions influenced the late-18th century literary antiquarianism.

Keywords:   Thomas Percy, Reliques of Ancient English Poetry, English poetry, antiquarianism, methodological assumptions
