Margaret Cavendish’s Poems and Fancies: A Digital Critical Edition


Description: This website offers a scholarly critical edition of Margaret Cavendish’s Poems and Fancies, first published in 1653 and reprinted, completely revised and significantly rearranged, in 1664 (with a third edition, largely based on the second edition, in 1668). The poems presented here have been produced after a full collation across all three editions, and include full textual notes. These textual notes tell you, in each instance where there was a variant reading across editions, which reading we chose, and what the alternate reading(s) was(/were).
