Friendship and Allegiance in Eighteenth-Century Literature: The Politics of Private Virtue in the Age of Walpole

by E. Jones
 
Friendship and Allegiance explores the concept of friendship as it was defined, contested and distorted by writers of the early eighteenth century. Setting well-known canonical texts (The Beggar's Opera, Gulliver's Travels) alongside lesser-known works, it portrays a literary world renegotiating the meaning of public and private virtue.
