Review:

"Here is a warm welcome for any student encountering eighteenth-century literature for the first time. This lively and practical handbook opens the door on a wealth of materials to engage them and set them thinking for themselves. The range of critical approaches and the mix of context and analysis make for a volume that introduces rather than packages."
- Professor David Fairer, University of Leeds, UK

"For undergraduate students, Day and Keegan introduce British literature and culture in the eighteenth century. In the ten chapters, which follow a progressive learning strategy rather than a chronological discussion, a group of English, literature, and history scholars from the UK and US discuss authors, texts, and historical and cultural contexts, including Samuel Johnson and Jonathan Swift; key critics, concepts, and topics, such as aesthetics, criticism, feminism, the novel, Romanticism, and satire; gender, sexuality, and ethnicity; major critical approaches, changes in the canon, and directions for research; and case studies in reading literary and theoretical and critical texts." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.

"An innovative as well as a practical and level-headed guidebook, written by engaged and experienced scholars and teachers, which sets out for students at university level some of the central concepts, contexts and approaches, and gives a sense of the variety, challenge and excitement to be found in the study of British literature of the long eighteenth century."
- Marcus Walsh, Kenneth Allott Professor of English Literature, University of Liverpool, UK
