Gleaning modernity : earlier eighteenth-century literature and the modernizing process by Eric Rothstein( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book asks, how could British culture have modernized so rapidly and yet with so little trauma in the eighteenth century? It hypothesizes that one reason was the growth of literature with a built-in range of reading options and the complementary growth of a readership who made active choices about how to read texts. In this climate, the characteristic eighteenth-century literary practice of writers' reinhabiting older texts and genres allowed for conservative surface continuity. At the same time it allowed readers to experience forms of cultural change in their imaginations, as simulations for experimental, familiarizing, and predictive ends in a changing environment. Different readers could apply the works in accord with their needs, desires, and predilections." "Through rigorously historical but not univocal readings of several widely familiar works, the book also argues that this literature does socially constitutive work in a way that differs from commonly made neofoucauldian, marxisant claims. Its (non-cynical) consumer-driven model, in which artworks offer variously instructive make-believe, does not require or invoke transgression, subversion, finger-wagging, or complaisance as means of social efficacy."--Jacket
The beaux' stratagem by George Farquhar( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Beaux' Stratagem' has been praised for the range, depth and naturalism of its characters: at a time when most comedies were written in, for and about London, Farquhar leaves behind the tendency to portray country folk as uncouth and laughable rustics. In addition, the play has been seen as broaching the gap between the sharp wit of Restoration comedy and its plots full of rakes and rascals, and the more genteel, sentimental comedy of the eighteenth century, whose focus falls not on sexual one-upmanship but on the realities of marital discord
