Synopsis

The essays in this collection range across literature, aesthetics, music and art, and explore such themes as the dynamics of change in eighteenth-century aesthetics; time, modernity and the picturesque; the function of graphic ornaments in eighteenth-century texts; imaginary voyages as a literary genre; the genesis of children's literature; the Italian opera and musical theory in Frances Burney's novels; Italian and British art theories; and patterns of cultural transfers and of book circulation between Britain and Italy in the eighteenth century. Collectively they epitomise the concerns and approaches of scholars working on the long eighteenth century at this challenging and exciting time. In the absence of universally agreed, overarching interpretations of the cultural history of the long eighteenth century, these papers pave the way for the ultimate emergence of such explanations.

Authors discussed here include Margaret Cavendish, David Russen, Francis Hutcheson, Reverend Gilpin, Samuel Richardson, Henry Fielding, Laurence Sterne, Dugald Stewart, Dorothy Kilner, Frances Burney, Anna Gordon Brown, Saverio Bettinelli, Henry Ince Blundell, Francesco Algarotti, Ugo Foscolo and Francesco Domenico Guerrazzi.

Rosamaria Loretelli is Professor of English Literature at Naples Federico II University. She has written books on the Spanish picaresque and on its British and European reception; on seventeenth and eighteenth-century popular literature of crime; and on eighteenth-century narrative theory. In a forthcoming book she relates the rise of the novel to the eighteenth-century reading revolution. Frank O'Gorman taught History at the University of Manchester throughout his career, where he is now Professor Emeritus. He is an authority on eighteenth-century Britain, specialising in the development of political parties, political ideology, public opinion and elections and political ritual and public performances.
