Produktbeschreibung
The Cambridge History of English Literature, 1660-1780 offers readers discussions of the entire range of literary expression from the Restoration to the end of the eighteenth century. In essays by thirty distinguished scholars, recent historical perspectives and new critical approaches and methods are brought to bear on the classic authors and texts of the period. Forgotten or neglected authors and themes as well as new and emerging genres within the expanding marketplace for printed matter during the eighteenth century receive special attention and emphasis. The volume's guiding purpose is to examine the social and historical circumstances within which literary production and imaginative writing take place in the period and to evaluate the enduring verbal complexity and cultural insights they articulate so powerfully.

Rezensionen
'... the new Cambridge History of English Literature, 1660-1780, is a welcome and needed reference ... a volume to ponder, to enjoy, and in places, to challenge. ... the essays in this volume jostle against one another, some synthesizing recent information, some proposing new opinions, some challenging modern trends. Richetti and his colleagues are to be commended for producing a book that represents so much of the best recent thinking about eighteenth-century literature.' Claudia Kairoff, Eighteenth-Century Life
