From the Publisher“an admirably lucid and up-to-date guide to thefield”
The Year's Work in English Studies
"Sussman's study of 18th-century literature is very readable andclear as it is free from obfuscating theoretical jargon. Itaddresses a large market of general as well as academic readers,and even experienced and widely-read scholars and teachers, ever indanger of dogmatic stasis, will profit enormously from its newreadings and occasional provocations"
"Professor Sussman has written an admirably lucid, lively bookwhich conveys an enormous amount of up-to-the minute scholarshipwith concision, elegance, and lightness of touch. The book combineswell selected thematic discussions and detailed readings ofessential texts, with fascinating historical material in ways thatwill answer the readers' questions and open out vistas for furtherreading and research. A valuable introduction to the literature ofthis period for undergraduate and postgraduate readers."
