Born Alice Clarke, the daughter of Oxford university's 'first director of printing', Alicia D'Anvers' poetry demonstrates an intimate familiarity with Oxford and particularly with the workings of the clicking. This quantity reproduces 3 works: A Poem Upon His Sacred Majesty, His Voyage for Holland (1691), Academia: or, the Humours of the college of Oxford in Burlesque Verse (1691), and The Oxford-Act: A Poem (1693). A Poem Upon His Sacred Majesty... responds to William III's determination to go to his local Holland to barter with fellow Protestants approximately their clash with Catholic France. William, frequently impatient with English political wrangling, occasionally hinted that he may perhaps abdicate and go back to Holland. D'Anvers' poem displays genuine anxieties approximately such an occasion, in addition to good help for the Protestant king. The replica reproduced during this variation is from the Houghton Library at Harvard collage. Academia and The Oxford-Act problem extra neighborhood concerns. most likely D'Anvers' most sensible poem, Academia satirises a few of Oxford University's 'younger sort', usually adopting language that turns out as tough and coarse as that of the lads that she mocks. The Oxford-Act specializes in the yearly collage 'Act' or graduation rite which lasted for a number of days and integrated many rituals. The reproduction reproduced this is from The Huntington Library. The reproduction of Academia is reproduced from that held on the Folger Shakespeare Library.
