Roderick Random by T Smollett( Book )

45 editions published between 1979 and 2017 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surging with verbal, sexual, and martial energy, The Adventures of Roderick Random opens a window on life, love, and war in the eighteenth century. The hero battles his way from poverty and neglect to make his mark as a doctor, writer, fighter, and lover. His adventures take us across the world, from England and France to the Caribbean, Africa, and Latin America. One of the first truly global novels, it casts light on nearly every aspect of its time -- imperialism, gender relations, slavery, urban life, colonial warfare, commerce, politics, the professions, high society, and the Hogarthian underworld."--Jacket flap

Tobias Smollett, Scotland's first novelist : new essays in memory of Paul-Gabriel Boucé( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays on the writings of Tobias Smollett by eleven scholars from Canada, England, France, Ireland, and the United States takes a fresh look at issues raised not only in Smollett's novels, for which he is now usually remembered, but in works such as A Complete History of England and the Continuation of the Complete History, which made him the most popular historian of England in the mid-eighteenth century. Essays provide new insights into Smollett's writings, and suggest additional avenues for scholars to explore. The volume continues the reassessment of the writings of one of the major authors of the eighteenth century."--Jacket
The adventures of Peregrine Pickle : in which are included memoirs of a lady of quality by T Smollett( Book )

9 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genius of "Peregrine Pickle" and its young author is to be found neither exclusively in the interpolated tales that its contemporary audience read avidly nor in the 'main story' that appealed to its later readers but rather in the entire canvas upon which is painted a densely populated and vividly realized fictional world. Taken in its entirety, Smollett's novel still holds the power to delight and instruct a modern audience by virtue of its author's capacious vision, his force of spirit, and his ability to capture life in words and images."--from the editors' introduction
The adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom by T Smollett( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom is a novel by Tobias Smollett first published in 1753. It was Smollett's third novel... The central character is a villainous dandy who cheats, swindles and philanders his way across Europe and England with little concern for the law or the welfare of others. The son of an equally disreputable mother, Smollett himself comments that "Fathom justifies the proverb, 'What's bred in the bone will never come out of the flesh'." Sir Walter Scott commented that the novel paints a "complete picture of human depravity." --Wikipedia.com

LA PREMIERE PARTIE DE CETTE THESE RETRACE LES GRANDES LIGNES DE LA VIE D'ANSTEY, "SQUIRE" DE TRUMPINGTON (ET ETUDIE EN PARTICULIER SES RAPPORTS AVEC LA VILLE D'EAUX DE BATH) EN ESSAYANT DE CERNER SA PERSONNALITE (ON Y RETROUVE LES TRAITS DU SANGUIN ET DE L'HONNETE HOMME), ANALYSE LE NEW BATH GUIDE ET REPLACE AUTEUR ET OEUVRE DANS L'HISTOIRE LITTERAIRE. LE NEW BATH GUIDE SE COMPOSE DE QUINZE LETTRES EN VERS ET D'UN EPILOGUE: LES EPISTOLIERS VENUS A BATH Y TROUVER LA GUERISON A DES MAUX PHYSIQUES EN REPARTENT RUINES ET MURS ALORS POUR UNE REGENERATION. DANS LE NEW BATH GUIDE SE TROUVENT REUNIS TROIS GENRES LITTERAIRES: SATIRIQUE, EPISTOLAIRE ET POETIQUE. LA STRATEGIE SATIRIQUE D'ANSTEY (EMPLOI DE L'"INDIRECTION" DU "MOCK-HEROIC" DE LA PARODIE, DE L'IRONIE ET D'AUTRES PROCEDES PUREMENT COMIQUES), SON UTILISATION DU GENRE EPISTOLAIRE ET DU GENRE POETIQUE (EN PARTICULIER L'EMPLOI DE L'ANAPESTE) SERONT ANALYSEES.

Adam Smith, Lord Kames, Hugh Blair et le mouvement des Belles-Lettres à Edimbourg entre 1748 et 1783 : le rôle de la littérature dans la rénovation culturelle de ĺEcosse au milieu du dix-huitième siècle by Pierre Carboni( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AMONG THE GREAT NAMES OF THE SCOTTISH ENLIGHTENMENT, ADAM SMITH, LORD KAMES (HENRY HOME), AND HUGH BLAIR ILLUSTRATE VERY WELL THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LITERATURE AND THE OTHER DIVISIONS OF KNOWLEDGE. THE TEACHING OF "BELLES LETTRES" , INS@IRED IN TERMS AS IN SPIRIT, BY FRENCH NEO-CLASSICISM, EMERGES IN EDINBURGH IN THE WAKE OF SMITH' FIRST LECTURES. HELPED BY VARIOUS LITERARY SOCIETIES, THE MOVEMENT PLAYS AN IMPORTANT PART IN DISSEMINATING A VALUABLE LINGUISTIC KNOWLEDGE. THE OLD RHETORIC IS SAVED BY THE OBSERVATION OF THE HUMAN CONTEXT OF COMMUNICATION. WITH KAMES, RHETORIC BECOMES A PART OF THE NEW "SCIENCE OF MAN". IT PROMOTES UNDER BLAIR A NEW DEFINITION OF CLASSICS WHICH HERALDS, THROUGH ITS SUCCESS IN EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES, THE MODERN TEACHING OF LITERARY HISTORY. BY THE END OF ITS DEVELOMENT, IT ALLOWS A WORLD-AMBITIOUS BRAND OF SCOTTISH WRITING TO EMERGE WITHIN THE NEW "BRITISH" CULTURAL CONDOMINIUM
Dévoilement et dérobade lecture de l'univers romanesque de Daniel Defoe, 1719-1724 by Elisabeth Détis( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE CORPUS IS MADE UP OF DANIEL DEFOE'S (1660?-1731) SIX NOVELS : ROBINSON CRUSOE (1719), MEMOIRS OF A CAVALIER (1720), CAPTAIN SINGLETON (1720), MOLL FLANDERS (1722), COLONEL JACK (1722), ROXANA 1724). THE METHOD IS THAT OF SEMIOTICS AND TACKLES THE THEMES OF VEILING, UNVEILING AND EVADING. THE STUDY IS BASED ON AN ANALYSIS OF THE NETWORKS OF IMAGES REFERRING TO CLOTHING, NAKEDNESS AND DISGUISE. THE ISSUES OF SURVIVAL, OF SEGREGATION AND SEXUALITY ARE DEALT WITH THROUGH THE QUESTIONING OF WHAT, BROADLY SPEAKING, CLOTHES MAN. WHAT IS HE IN A STATE OF NATURE, OF SUFFERING, OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH, AS DELINEATED BY HIS NAKEDNESS? HOW ARE HIS IDENTITY AND ALIENATION MADE CLEAR VIA A NARRATIVE MEDIUM THAT DISQUISES AS MUCH AS IT REVEALS? THE DIALECTICS OF HIDING, CONFESSING AND EVADING IS BOTH A THEME AND A TECHNIQUE : FOR THIS TWO-FOLD REASON, IT CONSTITUTES THE ORGANIC METAPHOR FOUNDING DEFOE'S FICTION AND THE APPROACH OF THIS THESIS
