Acts of implication : suggestion and covert meaning in the works of Dryden, Swift, Pope, and Austen by Irvin Ehrenpreis ( Book )
15 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book argues that the best approach to the aesthetic value of much literature of the past is by way of the deliberate meaning--implicit or explicit--that the author invites the reader to share. Ehrenpreis shows that subtlety and indirection do not militate against the didacticism and lucid style we usually associate with writers in the Augustan tradition. In a group of stimulating essays he examines how an eighteenth-century dramatist, essayist, poet, and novelist imply meaning about politics, religion, and sexual passion, focusing on their concept of heroism to elaborate these themes
