About this title


Turning Points demonstrates the role of style and form in promoting and shaping cultural development by studying important critics, and analyzing cultural change in literature, music, art, and philosophy.


'No one has written seriously about 'preromanticism' for quite a while. The term itself fell into disrepute because it suggests a false teleology. Now Marshall Brown has recuperated it, refined it, and composed a big, dense, important book about it: This fresh conceptualization of the second half of the eighteenth century, touching on French and German as well as British literature, invigorates the imagination by its audacious textual conjunctions (Rasselas and Tristram Shandy, She Stoops to Conquer and An Evening Walk), its theoretical authority, and its interpretive energy. Eighteenth-century studies will never be quite the same.'Eighteenth-Century Fiction
