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

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 329 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
Mid-nineteenth century writers : Eliot, De Quincey, Emerson( Book )

5 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beaux' stratagem by George Farquhar( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new edition, The Beaux' Stratagem is seen as a traditional work, combining characteristics of the Restoration comedy of manners with those of the more conventionally moral comedy that followed. Mr. Fifer discusses the numerous alterations made in the text during the century, many of which eliminated racy dialogue or diminished the importance of the marriage-divorce theme. Farquhar's views on divorce were influenced by Milton; he is also concerned here with the conflict between virtue and vice, and with the importance of money and its influence on personal freedom. Based on a collation of eight copies of the first quarto, this edition includes extensive discussion of text and stage history
