University of Wisconsin Press, 2001 - History - 305 pages
Eighteenth-Century Contexts offers a lively array of essays that consider literary, intellectual, political, theological, and cultural aspects of the years 1650-1800, in the British Isles and Europe. At the center of the book is Jonathan Swift; several essays delve into his poetry, his similarities to Bernard Mandeville, his response to Anthony Collins's Discourse of Free-Thinking, and the relationship between his Gulliver's Travels and Thomas More's Utopia. Other essays discuss Alexander Pope, eighteenth-century music and poetry, William Congreve, James Boswell, Samuel Richardson, and women's novels of the eighteenth century.
