    • Abstract: Rybczak, Emil. "
      Authors hip of The Drummer; or, The Haunted House," N&Q, 63 (December 2016), 588–590.Who wrote The Drummer (1715) has been disputed since the play first appeared in print anonymously. Thanks largely to Richard Steele's letter in an English edition of Addison's Works in 1722, it has usually been attributed to Addison. Mr. Rybczak educes from an advertisement in a pirated edition of the play published at The Hague around the same year that it was written primarily by William Harrison (1685–1713). The advertisement, by publisher Thomas Johnson, has been noted before, but Mr. Rybczak provides sensible possibilities regarding the conflicting statements of Steele and Johnson: Harrison wrote the play ...

  • Sterne's Mummies: Fraudulent Trade In "The Prodigal Son" Sermon
    • Abstract: The Ægyptian Mummies, which Cambyses or time hath spared, avarice now consumeth. Mummie is become Merchandise.Most of the critical attention given to Laurence Sterne's sermon on the prodigal son has been directed to "the rather abrupt transition midway in this sermon" from a traditional application of the parable to Sterne's critique of the fashionable Grand Tour.1 Ryan J. Stark, however, has found other implications in a passage earlier in the sermon that contains, he argues, a rather Shandean double entendre.2 Without rejecting Stark's reading, I would like to suggest that this passage shows Sterne imaginatively embellishing the biblical story in a way hitherto undetected.3Such embellishment is invited, Sterne ...

  • Sovereign Power and the Enlightenment: Eighteenth-Century Literature and
           the Problem of the Political by Peter DeGabriele (review)
    • Abstract: If Habermas was once the presiding genius of eighteenth-century studies, Hobbes now oversees the latest critical turn in the field. Mr. DeGabriele unpacks eighteenth-centuryists' self-aggrandizing adoption of the Habermassian public sphere as a liberal myth that obscures the persistence of sovereign power and violence and a subject "not reducible" to its laws. Sovereign Power challenges accounts of the novel as the "triumph of the individual," exploring moments when eighteenth-century fiction produces "subject positions not reducible to that of the self-sufficient liberal individual and … cannot be contained within the terms of the social contract." Such an argument will be welcomed by a scholarly audience ... Read More

  • Anglican Enlightenment: Orientalism, Religion and Politics in England and
           Its Empire, 1648–1715 by William J. Bulman (review)
    • Abstract: The Savoyard reactionary Joseph de Maistre reportedly once called the Church of England "l'orang-outang parmi les singes," the orangutan among the monkeys. By this, presumably, de Maistre meant that Anglicanism, alone among the churches of the Reformation, had preserved in some measure the necessary elements of social order: hierarchy, liturgy, reverence for monarchy. He would, no doubt, be appalled to learn from Mr. Bulman's magnificent new study that the Church's capacity for conservatism derived not from the consecrated accumulation of thoughtless pieties and prejudices but was rather the work of rational men of substance, whose scholarly debates concerning the religious dimensions of civil peace in the later ...

  • Religion and Women in Britain, c. 1660–1760 ed. Sarah Apetrei and
           Hannah Smith (review)
    • Abstract: This collection brings women's voices to the fore in the history of religion in early modern Britain. Some of the women discussed in this volume use their "inside voices": they are polite and considerate, they worship soberly and respectfully, and they pray quietly in their closets. Other women are shouting at the top of their lungs, out on the streets, denouncing their persecutors and bitterly complaining about their husbands. The first group includes a number of Anglicans, such as Mary II, Damaris Masham, and Catherine Talbot; the second includes the Scottish Coat-Muir Folk, the sisters Grisell and Mary Spritt, and the English Particular Baptist Anne Wentworth. Most readers will be left in no doubt that women's ... Read More

  • Theatre and the Novel from Behn to Fielding by Anne F. Widmayer (review)
    • Abstract: "I am, in reality, the Founder of a new Province of Writing," the narrator of Tom Jones asserts, "so I am at liberty to make what Laws I please therein. And these Laws, my Readers, whom I consider as my Subjects, are bound to believe in and to obey." So begins one of the classic, and classically innovative, novels written in the English language. But how innovative is Fielding's novel, really' As Ms. Widmayer compellingly reveals in her book on the relationship of the eighteenth-century novel to the stage, the technique that Fielding here models, of interrupting the flow of narrative to address his reader from, as it were, center stage, was one with deep roots in a theatrical tradition.Central to Ms. Widmayer's ...

  • Making Love: Sentiment and Sexuality in Eighteenth-Century British
           Literature by Paul Kelleher (review)
    • Abstract: Mr. Kelleher proposes an exciting reconfiguration of the literary history of sentimentality: although scholars typically identify Sterne as the first author to popularize sentimentalism in Sentimental Journey, it actually "emerges earlier in the century" through Shaftesbury's philosophy, Addison's and Steele's periodicals, Haywood's Love in Excess, Richardson's Pamela, and Fielding's Tom Jones. These authors, Mr. Kelleher contends, collectively develop incipient models of sentimentality and "devote their creative energies to vigorously heterosexualizing the human capacity for moral goodness." The close readings he produces of specific texts—Pamela in particular—go a long way toward demonstrating the viability of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Does the world need another companion to the English novel' With so much material already out there, a new and expensive reference work might seem inessential. The ninetieth installment in the Blackwell Companions to Literature and Culture series, A Companion to the English Novel is a helpful addition to the numerous reference works on British fiction, however. Its most striking and distinguishing features are the coverage of British fiction into the twenty-first century and the high caliber of its contributors, including such luminaries as Patricia Meyer Spacks, J. Paul Hunter, and John Richetti.Its twenty-nine chapters in seven sections include concentrations on notable decades in the history of the novel, key ... Read More

  • The Mind Is a Collection: Case Studies in Eighteenth-Century Thought by
           Sean Silver (review)
    • Abstract: "If you want to unpack his metaphors, you will have to unpack his library," writes Mr. Silver about John Locke. Patterns of thought and the spatial arrangement of one's environment are brought into close correspondence in Mr. Silver's study by means of one of the core metaphors of the human mind in the period: the mind as a collection. Across a series of "case" studies, Mr. Silver goes on to "unpack" the minds of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century authors, essayists, and philosophers, and he puts a sometimes predictable, sometimes intriguing set of objects on the green felt for his readers: Locke's Commonplace Book, Milton's Bed, Robert Hooke's Camera Obscura, The Iliad in a Nutshell, Addison's Walk, A Book of ...

  • Authority Figures: Rhetoric and Experience in John Locke's Political
           Thought by Torrey Shanks (review)
    • Abstract: With its punning title, Authority Figures packs a lot into a little space. With a text of 135 pages, including notes, this is a concise study, but its argument covers a great deal of ground: the thrust of the book is that Locke, as an empiricist philosopher, insists on the senses as the source of knowledge and by doing so undermines traditional claims to authority (for example, those made by innatists). At the same time, the process of making judgments is not straightforward because experience itself is rich but "unruly," requiring probable reasoning, and also because passions, interests, the will, and Locke's account of selfhood all complicate the human predicament. Amid this scenario, the question of language ... Read More

  • Protest, Politics and Work in Rural England, 1700–1850 by Carl J.
           Griffin (review)
    • Abstract: Mr. Griffin explores the interactions of protest, politics, and work in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He links protest culture from the Jacobite uprisings and food riots of the eighteenth century to the Swing Riots of 1830. By starting in 1700, Mr. Griffin acknowledges that he skims the protests that occurred in the aftermath of the Glorious Revolution, but his study is not intended to be a complete account of the period; he takes a thematic, rather than chronological, approach to his study of protest, organizing it into seven distinct chapters. He contextualizes riots through a consideration of work, under-and unemployment, poverty, and custom, arguing that they cannot be understood outside of ... Read More

  • Elite Women in Ascendancy Ireland, 1690–1745: Imitation and Innovation
           by Rachel Wilson (review)
    • Abstract: In 1707, Juliana, dowager countess of Burlington and guardian of her son's estate, was asked by an Irish curate to support repairs to a church in Tallow, County Waterford. The church's roof had been partially blown off in a storm, and the curate turned to her because of her family's long ties to the area; her son's great-grandfather, the Earl of Cork, had worshiped there. Juliana grudgingly agreed to cover some of the costs but not enough to pay for both the demolition and rebuilding that were needed. Yet only a year later she spent a considerable sum of money to repair and beautify a church on her son's English estate. These two decisions nicely exemplify the peculiarities of both the Irish elite and Ms. Wilson's ... Read More

           Journalist, Hibernian Patriot, and Maverick Thinker of the Enlightenment.
           An Essayistic Portrait) by Heinz-Joachim Müllenbrock (review)
    • Abstract: How does one introduce an iridescent, enigmatic figure like the Dean of St. Patrick's, Dublin, and his multivolume, multilayered work to lay readers expectantly assembled at a soirée in such a way that they will feel tempted, or challenged, or provoked to go on reading him beyond versions of Gulliver's Travels for children or adolescents' The answer, in addition to having THE Dean, the only Dean in the history of Ireland, at one's fingertips, is that one needs to choose wisely. Both criteria are met by Mr. Müllenbrock, who not only shows himself in full command of his material, primary as well as secondary, but who also skillfully lays his groundwork.Having started off with the comic fantasy of Gulliver's first two ...

  • A History of English Autobiography ed. by Adam Smyth (review)
    • Abstract: Appealing to generalists and specialists alike, Mr. Smyth's edited collection reconsiders the history of English autobiography in twenty-nine chapters, spanning the medieval period to the present. His introduction sketches the text's premise as "represent[ing] the critical state of play in the field, and interven[ing] in urgent ways." He begins by addressing the complexity of the term "autobiography" and challenging its dominant post-Romantic definition as a form of "inwardness" in self-expression. Encouraging his authors to employ a variety of designations to represent the genre (for example, life-writing, self-accounting, and memoir), Mr. Smyth highlights three modes through which all the essays can be read: ...

  • Atheism and Deism Revalued: Heterodox Religious Identities in Britain,
           1650–1800 ed. by Wayne Hudson, Diego Lucci, and Jeffrey R. Wigelsworth
           (review)
    • Abstract: This volume forges a complex picture of how both atheism and deism functioned in specific historical contexts and within the work of Hobbes, Toland, Collins, Wollaston, Tindal, and others. The conventional narrative that deism early in the century planted the seeds for the later development of atheism is put in conversation with a historical methodology that demythologizes deism and atheism as progressions toward radical enlightenment. The essays here defy the notion that any definition of atheism or deism can account for the range of heterogeneous views represented by thinkers associated with these words by carefully parsing their views on both -isms. The very method of the chapters—historically grounded research ... Read More

  • Three Russian Tales of the Eighteenth Century: "The Comely Cook," "Vanka
           Kain," and "Poor Liza" ed. by David Gasperetti (review)
    • Abstract: The three short fictions collected here were all written toward the end of the century and hence beyond the usual Scriblerian purview. The story "Poor Liza" is, however, one of the best brief works inspired by Sterne's sentimentalism; the other two novels exhibit the reach of early eighteenth-century fiction into Russia well into the nineteenth century.Nikolai Karamzin (1766–1826), the author of "Poor Liza" (1793), was immediately recognized in Russia as an imitator of Sterne, both because of his first work, Letters of a Russian Traveller (1791), a sentimental journey, and because he published his own critical high praise of Sterne: "O incomparable Sterne! … At what learned university were you taught to feel so ...

  • The Last Battle on English Soil, Preston 1715 by Jonathan Oates (review)
    • Abstract: Despite the oft-repeated prayers of some historians of the eighteenth century, a steady flow of new works that seek to reveal the many aspects of historical Jacobitism is still being produced. In Preston 1715, historian and archivist Jonathan Oates proves there is plenty of fertile ground left to survey in the field of Jacobite studies. Mr. Oates's research focus, both in this book and beyond, ultimately lies in Northern England and is canted toward the military framework of the struggle there for the Three Kingdoms of Britain during the long eighteenth century. Preston 1715 makes no claim otherwise and can be summarized as a competent survey of the pivotal battle with enough introductory and background material to ... Read More
