Men of Feeling in Eighteenth-Century Literature : Touching Fiction, Hardback Book

Men of Feeling in Eighteenth-Century Literature : Touching Fiction Hardback

Description

Analysing texts by Sterne, Smollett, Brooke, and Mackenzie, this book offers a new perspective on a question that literary criticism has struggled with for years: why are many sentimental novels of the 1700s so pervasively and playfully self-conscious, and why is this self-consciousness so often directed toward the materiality of the printed word?
