Abstract

This thesis is a scholarly edition of the John Henry Newman's Verses on Various Occasions. The poems have been annotated so as to provide readers with knowledge of selected textual variations found in other versions, cross-references to Newman's numerous other works, cross-references to biblical sources, as well as glosses for difficult terms. The textual variants presented are not exhaustive; however, they have been chosen as representing the most significant of the changes Newman made to his poems, and as being most worthy of commentary; The introduction provides readers with an overview of Newman's life in relation to his poetry, discussion of the poems themselves, as well as the editorial methods used for this edition.
