9781140865803: Miscellanies in prose and verse, original and translated. By the Rev. William Rayner, ...

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
Western literary study flows out of eighteenth-century works by Alexander Pope, Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Frances Burney, Denis Diderot, Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others. Experience the birth of the modern novel, or compare the development of language using dictionaries and grammar discourses.

About the Author:

William Rayner is a semi-retired journalist who has been a keen observer of British Columbia's historical scene for more than 40 years. Born in Winnipeg in 1929, William was educated there before joining the Royal Canadian Navy in 1947. After five years' service, including action in the Korean War, he entered the newspaper business. Although he wrote and edited for the "Trail Daily Times, " the "Victoria Times", the "Vancouver Herald", the "Montreal Star" and the "Globe and Mail", William spent most of his newspaper career with the "Vancouver Sun". In 1971, he edited the much acclaimed "Vancouver Sun Centennial Edition".Since retiring from daily journalism in 1988, William has written a number of articles for magazines and newspapers. From 1990 to 1995, he wrote a biweekly column for the "Vancouver Province".William describes himself as "a political chronographer who probably knows more about the past 130 years than is good for me." His hobbies include watching trains, playing bad chess and passable Scrabble, chasing tornadoes each spring and reading (especially newspapers).
