Visiting Scholar Publishes Book on 18th Century Verse

John Knapp, visiting scholar and longtime adjunct in the department, recently published Fiddled out of Reason, one of the very few scholarly books focused on eighteenth-century hymnic poetry, and the verse of Joseph Addison (most famous for founding the early periodical, The Spectator) in particular. 

The book is now available in the Zimmerman stacks. A full description of the book can be seen here, and much of it is scannable on Google Books.
