Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture

Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture

The Geography of Enlightenment
Volume 30

Always interdisciplinary, the field of eighteenth-century studies has recently become genuinely international. To reflect this global emphasis, this volume of Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture gathers four essays under the rubric of "The Geography of Enlightenment." Set in a variety of local habitations from the European periphery to the American frontier, each of these essays addresses how a relative sense of place determines interpretation.

Other essays explore such topics as the aesthetics of novelty in Addison and Sterne, the influence of the religious lyric on Richardson's Clarissa, feminine authority in Eliza Haywood's spectatorial fiction, and the issue of male effeminacy in English dance history.
