The third of a five-volume edition of Smart's original poems and verse translations, which is particularly concerned to show how Smart attempted to adapt the Psalms for his eighteenth-century English Christian audience.

Christopher Smart (1722-1771) was an English poet, whose works include A Song to David and Jubilate Agno, both of which were at least partly written during his confinement in an insane asylum.
