The Making of Percy's Reliques

Nick Groom

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the historical background of the printing of Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. The printing of the Reliques took James Dodsley two and a half years to finish. This chapter explores the intersection of the texts of Percy's different literary projects in the light of renewed advice from William Shenstone regarding the printing of the Reliques, and Percy's spiralling circle of correspondents. It also highlights the extant proofs and revisions made by Percy prior to the actual printing of the Reliques.

Keywords:   Reliques of Ancient English Poetry, Thomas Percy, James Dodsley, William Shenstone, printing, ancient poetry, literary antiquarianism
