  • Miniature and the English Imagination: Literature, Cognition, and
           Small-Scale Culture, 1650–1765 by Melinda Alliker Rabb (review)
    • Abstract: When I was eight, my uncle gave me a catalog of the collection of eighteenth-century ship models at the U.S. Naval Academy.1 I poured over that book for hours on end, fascinated by the level of meticulous detail, both in the models made by professionals at various shipyards, which often highlighted their exquisite materials, and in those made by French prisoners of war, which were largely carved from beef bones. I've long regarded that early interest in eighteenth-century naval miniatures as formative: the conversion experience that launched me on the path that led to a career as a dix-huitièmiste. But it's not been until now, with the aid of Melinda Rabb's new book, that I have begun to understand why those models ... Read More

  • Novel Bodies: Disability and Sexuality in Eighteenth-Century British
           Literature by Jason S. Farr (review)
    • Abstract: In recent years, a growing number of British and American literary scholars have sought to extend disability studies, often centered in analysis of contemporary societies, into the eighteenth century. Jason Farr's monograph Novel Bodies participates in this trend by exploring the mutually constitutive construction of disability and queer sexualities in eighteenth-century novelistic discourse. As such, it should be of particular interest to scholars both in and outside of British studies specializing in either disability or queer studies. Novel Bodies' central argument—the imbrication of the construction of disability and queer sexualities—is the richer for its further claim that this intersectional relationship is ... Read More

  • The History of Childhood: A Very Short Introduction by James Marten

    • Abstract: This volume is another in Oxford University Press's highly successful and long-running series of "Very Short Introductions." James Marten was the natural choice to write this volume, with scholarly publications in the field of the history of childhood and youth, and long service as both president and editor of the Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth and as a founding member of the Society for the History of Childhood and Youth.In the introduction to The History of Childhood: A Very Short Introduction, Marten deftly navigates some of the most complex debates in the historiography of childhood, outlining the divide within the field between approaches to childhood in terms of biological determinism and those ...

  • Literary Cultures and Eighteenth-Century Childhoods ed. by Andrew O'Malley
           (review)
    • Abstract: Readers of Eighteenth-Century Studies will find in this collection several entry points into children's literature studies, and the group as a whole makes a strong case for why eighteenth-century scholars should be paying attention to that field. The essays in this collection engage both the print culture for young people that first emerged in this period and demonstrate the centrality of childhood to questions about legal personhood, poetic diction, religious piety, and what distinguishes humans from animals. As Andrew O'Malley points out, our modern image of the child rests on a "fundamental contradiction": children simultaneously embody both "the promise of futurity" and "an ideal of, and longing for, a lost ...

  • Teaching Modern British and American Satire ed. by Evan R. Davis and
           Nicholas D. Nace (review)
    • Abstract: The term "satire" derives from the Roman satura, a mixed platter of food and nuts, and this volume, in its enjoyable variety, hews true to that source, even as it is as notable for the coherence that the wide-ranging approaches to Teaching Modern British and American Satire achieve, not in a shared emphasis on irony but in the sincere, even earnest, approach of the contributors. Even as the forms of, critical conceptions of, and pedagogical approaches to satire under consideration here are legion, and even as the contributors frequently take opposing positions on a given question, the volume coheres in consensus on the key problem of teaching satire—the tension that teaching satire produces between the teacherly ...

  • Cultivating Peace: The Virgilian Georgic in English, 1650–1750 by
           Melissa Schoenberger (review)
    • Abstract: Cultivating Peace is a fascinating book about Virgil's didactic agricultural poem The Georgics and the poetry and political thinking that it inspired in late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century England. Melissa Schoenberger recovers, from Virgil's poem, a distinctively georgic understanding of peace as mutable and contingent. Peace and war are made of the same stuff, involve the same energies: as Virgil showed, plowshares can and do turn to swords. Peace is not a permanent state—it requires cultivation, constant laborious vigilance against the forces of disorder that it always threatens to dissolve back into. Cultivating Peace features exceptionally sensitive readings of these ideas and attitudes in English ... Read More

  • Masters of the Middle Waters: Indian Nations and Colonial Ambitions along

    • Abstract: Jacob F. Lee's Masters of the Middle Waters: Indian Nations and Colonial Ambitions along the Mississippi offers a vibrant retelling of the period between the collapse of Cahokia in the early fourteenth century and the rise of the United States in the early nineteenth. His work highlights both the paramount importance of midcontinental riverways like the Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wabash and the centrality of Indigenous understandings, and networks, of kinship in shaping and controlling this pivotal region. These factors ensured that the landscape and waterways of Middle America provided a venue in which "numerous Indian nations, European Empires, and individuals struggled for power and ... Read More

  • China and the Writing of English Literary Modernity, 1690–1770 by
           Eun Kyung Min (review)
    • Abstract: Scholarship of the past two decades has firmly established the global quality of eighteenth-century British culture, political ambition, and self-definition. Eun Kyung Min's China and the Writing of English Literary Modernity, 1690–1770 reminds us that, in an age when British national identity was being reimagined in a global context, it was impossible to think geographically without simultaneously thinking temporally, and vice versa. Cultural difference marked the relationship not only between England and other nations, but also between England and its own past. While studies of orientalism have demonstrated how the West distinguishes itself by representing Eastern cultures as somehow of a "different time," Min's ... Read More

    • Abstract: John Richetti is A.M. Rosenthal Professor (Emeritus) of English at the University of Pennsylvania. He earned his Ph.D. at Columbia University in 1968. Before arriving at Penn, he taught at Columbia, Rutgers, and Stanford. In addition to serving as the President of the Defoe Society, Richetti has also chaired the Gottschalk Prize Committee, has been an advisory board member for Eighteenth-Century Studies, and was president of ASECS from 2008–2009.Richetti's work has ranged widely in the field—though the novel always has been a central concern. His first book, Popular Fiction before Richardson (1969) fundamentally challenged prevailing accounts of the rise of the novel. Subsequent works focused on the fictions of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Reflecting on his early days of graduate school at UCLA in an article for the launch issue of Digital Defoe in 2009, Maximillian Novak observed that he was "far from your single minded, professionally oriented graduate student," unsure what field to specialize in and absorbed by a range of writers and critical questions.1 "My favorite author was Swift," he wrote, but it was the topic of "Defoe and economics" that ultimately grabbed Novak's attention. At the time "it seemed as if ideas were swirling around Defoe's work and reputation, as if studies in Defoe were becoming possible in a way they had not been before." Novak entered that conversation with a dissertation that became his first book, Economics and the ... Read More

  • Perspective Views of the East India Company's Forts and Settlements: A
           Vision of South Asia for the British Public
    • Abstract: In January 1754, a London newspaper announced the publication of a new set of views of the East India Company's settlements, a set that included depictions of Fort St. George at Madras (now Chennai), Bombay (now Mumbai), Fort William at Calcutta (now Kolkata), and St. Helena, as well as the Dutch settlements at the Cape of Good Hope and Batavia (now Jakarta).1 Made after drawings by Jan Van Ryne (1712–60), a Dutch artist who is believed to have been active in London by 1750, the set was very timely: the Company was embroiled in ongoing hostilities in India in the early 1750s.2 To date, Van Ryne's views have typically been overshadowed by depictions of British India by George Lambert and Samuel Scott, artists who ...

    • Abstract: In 1793 the French lawyer and political essayist Charles-Louis Cadet Gassicourt gave a speech at the Parisian revolutionary section of Mont-Blanc honoring Jean-Paul Marat and Michel Le Peletier de Saint Fargeau. The occasion was the inauguration of two busts of these "martyrs" of the Revolution, but it also offered time for reflection on the political significance of the tens of thousands of liberty trees that French men and women were planting across the country to celebrate the new republic:Voici l'emblème du corps social, l'image de notre République.

  • The Poetics of Penal Transportation: Robert Southey's Botany-Bay Eclogues
    • Abstract: Exile (together with the concomitant themes of separation, displacement, and diaspora) has for some time been one of the most productive areas of cultural and literary research. Exile is also a central aspect in Robert Southey's Botany-Bay Eclogues, which were a series of four poems written in 1794, and a fifth published in 1798.1 The poems comprise two monologues and three conversations, spoken by exiled convicts who have been transported to Australia to work in the British penal colony popularly known as Botany Bay (located close to present-day Sydney). As Dorice Williams Elliott has shown in a recent monograph, the transported criminal was very much a "literary figure," appearing in several prominent novels.2 ... Read More

  • The Sublimating and Suspending Uses of Music in Radcliffe's The Mysteries
           of Udolpho
    • Abstract: Ann Radcliffe was undoubtedly the most popular and influential writer of eighteenth-century England. Deemed "the first poetess of romantic fiction" (Walter Scott), the "Shakspeare [sic] of Romance writers" (Nathan Drake), "a genius of no common stamp" (Anna Laetitia Barbauld), and "the great enchantress of that generation" (Thomas de Quincy), she was well respected and often admired by contemporary and early nineteenth-century luminaries of the literary scene.1 Five of her novels, referred to as "romances" for their fantastic and historical content, were published during her lifetime between 1789 and 1797, and her last novel (Gaston de Blondeville) was published posthumously in 1826. Radcliffe achieved worldwide ... Read More

  • Anne Finch's "Contemn'd Retreat" and the Politics of Lyric
    • Abstract: In recent decades, few poetic genres have been subject to as much redefinition as the lyric. Since the term first circulated regularly in critical discourse across the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, its vocabulary and taxonomy have encouraged critics to range across a number of topics—including subjectivity, interiority, brevity, musicality, and speech—and to debate their relative importance. Virginia Jackson's entry on "lyric" in the Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics aptly summarizes the state of critical play, emphasizing that the term remains unstable and polarizing in all its guises: "A persistent confusion—among verse genres, between historical genres and natural 'forms,' between adjective and ...

    • Abstract: Richard A. Barney's and Warren Montag's Systems of Life: Biopolitics, Economics, and Literature on the Cusp of Modernity consists of a substantive introduction and nine essays, which focus primarily on eighteenth-century European and colonial American texts by well-known authors such as Anna Barbauld, William Blake, Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Adam Smith, John Thelwall, and Phillis Wheatley. However, as suggested by the final phrase of its subtitle ("on the cusp of modernity"), this book aims to trace multiple ways in which eighteenth-century "systems of life," and especially the new science of political economy, established assumptions, aspirations, fears, norms, and institutions that ...

  • The Daily Jane Austen: A Year of Quotes by Devoney Looser, and: Jane
           Austen's Transatlantic Sister: The Life and Letters of Fanny Palmer Austen
           by Sheila Johnson Kindred (review)
    • Abstract: Jane Austen is one of the most quoted and misquoted authors to write in the English language. She has a seat at the (mis)quotation table alongside literary giants such as Charles Dickens and Henry Melville, as Devoney Looser reminds us in her foreword to The Daily Jane Austen: A Year of Quotes. How many people have quoted the famed beginning from Pride and Prejudice to fit their needs' Many, including Looser, who begins her foreword by encouraging readers to think about the act of quoting Austen: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that you could put almost anything in the second half of this sentence" (v). Fittingly, the book's daybook-like offering of daily Austen quotations also begins with this opening from ... Read More

  • The Birth of Modern Belief: Faith and Judgment from the Middle Ages to the
           Enlightenment by Ethan H. Shagan, and: Permanent Revolution: The
           Reformation and the Illiberal Roots of Liberalism by James Simpson
           (review)
    • Abstract: The question of how secular modernity arose in the early modern Christian West—a society steeped in communal norms, obedience, and faith—has long fascinated scholars. Most agree that the rise of skeptical philosophy was only one of many factors in the demise of the traditional Christian worldview and the socio-political structures that supported it. One of those factors is the Protestant Reformation. In The Birth of Modern Belief, Ethan Shagan claims that "the Reformation was not an engine of modernity" (3), while James Simpson argues in Permanent Revolution: The Reformation and the Illiberal Roots of Liberalism, that "[l]iberalism does indeed derive from Protestantism" (10). While the terms the authors use differ ... Read More

  • Let There Be Enlightenment: The Religious and Mystical Sources of
           Rationality ed. by Anton M. Matytsin and Dan Edelstein (review)
    • Abstract: Let There Be Enlightenment: The Religious and Mystical Sources of Rationality is a valuable entry in the literature challenging the picture of the eighteenth-century European Enlightenment as an essentially secularist and reason-centric revolution against authority, tradition, and superstition. For the authors in this volume, the process of enlightenment actually consisted in a variety of reform efforts distributed across a broad range of geographical locations as well as political and religious contexts. In addition to showing that these reform efforts entailed neither a radical break with the past, nor a complete disavowal of religious and spiritual practices, the volume also exemplifies the manner in which ...

  • Poetics of History: Rousseau and the Theater of Originary Mimesis by
           Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe (review)
    • Abstract: First published in French in 2002, Poétique de l'histoire seems to have little to do with either poetics, history, or indeed the poetics of history. To some extent, this changes when the work is viewed within the context of Lacoue-Labarthe's broader thinking, notably La Fiction du politique (1987), Heidegger: la politique du poème (2002), and his various translations, stagings, and theorizations of the work of Friedrich Hölderlin. In these writings, Lacoue-Labarthe reflects on the ways that literature is caught up in and distorted by political and philosophical considerations. The most unsettling instance of this schema is evident in Lacoue-Labarthe's response to Heidegger's use of Hölderlin's work, but the schema ... Read More

  • The Psychology of Inequality: Rousseau's "Amour-Propre" by Michael Locke
           McLendon (review)
    • Abstract: The current popularity of college rankings and the multiplication of talent acquisition specialists reveal a bureaucracy preoccupied with finding the crème de la crème of society. These features, according to some, constitute the democratic impulse of modern societies, which are wont to reward merit and individual worth. The recent college admissions cheating scandal, however, alerts us to the corruptible nature of merit in the landscape of American higher education. Michael Locke McLendon's timely work, The Psychology of Inequality: Rousseau's Amour-Propre, invites us to examine the enduring myth of meritocracy—the concern with being the best—through the lens of aristocracy. The leading passion of amour-propre (an ... Read More

  • Théâtre et charlatans dans l'Europe moderne ed. by Beya Dhraïef, Eric
           Négrel, and Jennifer Ruimi (review)
    • Abstract: The collection Théâtre et charlatans is practically disturbing in its modernity. Its attention to the ways that good faith could, and couldn't—should, and shouldn't—be demarcated from cynical self-interest in the modernizing France of early modernity and thereafter steadily, if indirectly, evokes realities of our own era. In a sense, Voltaire's skepticism about the efficacy of medical practice of his day, particularly evident in his 1768 remark, "Tout le monde est charlatan. Les écoles, les académies, les compagnies les plus graves ressemblent à l'apothicaire Arnoud" [Everyone is a charlatan. The most serious schools, academies, and companies resemble the Arnoud apothecary], serves well as an access point to the ... Read More

  • Born Yesterday: Inexperience and the Early Realist Novel by Stephanie
           Insley Hershinow (review)
    • Abstract: "Nevertheless, she persisted": this timely phrase could serve as an extra epigraph for Stephanie Hershinow's Born Yesterday, reminding us both of the character traits of young heroines of eighteenth-century novels—words like "plucky" and "irrepressible" come to mind—and of the critical condescension with which unwavering ingenuousness has been met. Just as this latter-day feminist motto was reclaimed from its origins in admonishment—will she ever learn'—and appropriated as a rallying cry, Hershinow seeks to show how, rather than representing the generic immaturity of the novel itself, good-girl protagonists from Richardson's Pamela to Austen's Emma are instead the vanguard of aesthetic achievement. She is ... Read More
