About this title


Reading Smell examines how far the novel, which is so often claimed to be a repository of modernity and changing mores, can be understood through a reintroduction of olfactory information. After decades of reading for all kinds of racial, cultural, gendered, and other sorts of absences back into the novel, this book takes one step further: to consider how the recovery of forgotten or overlooked olfactory assumptions might reshape our understanding of these texts.


Emily C. Friedman's Reading Smell in Eighteenth Century Fiction presents a new way of reading 18th-century literature: nose first.... Friedman's readings amply demonstrate the richness and diversity of the scent-based signals novelists employ to reveal their characters to us, and to one another.... Reading Smell in Eighteenth-Century Fiction offers an implicit how-to for others interested in extracting rich olfactory information embedded in literatures of the past. Even constrained by the long 18th century, the possibilities for reading smell within literatures we think we know feel limitless.--The Eighteenth-Century Intelligencer
