Rochester’s hitherto underappreciated political thinking is reassessed in this study via a combination of postmodern critical approaches, particularly the theories of Foucault with close contextual readings of his works. Substantially new and politicized readings are offered for Rochester’s satires, lyrics, prose, and drama-texts both rarely and much studied.
