Book Description:

A Companion to the Eighteenth-Century Novel and Culture provides an up-to-date resource for the study of this subject, foregrounding those topics of most historical and political relevance to the twenty-first century. It considers not only the canonical literature of the period, but also contemporaneous cultural texts from which the eighteenth-century novel emerged. The volume is divided into three parts exploring: Formative influences on the eighteenth-century novel Its engagement with the major issues and philosophies of the period Its lasting legacy. As a whole, the volume explores issues central to the study of the novel in today's theoretical climate, including themes such as globalization, national identity, sexuality, and commerce. This organization allows the Companion to capitalize on cutting-edge scholarship without obscuring more traditional parameters for the study of the eighteenth-century novel, such as narrative authority, print culture, and the development of the novel as a pan-European phenomenon.
