Summary

Summary

Designed to give scholars a review of important twentieth-century criticism of significant novels written in Britain from the late seventeenth to the late nineteenth centuries, The British Novel 1680-1832 provides citations for twenty important writers including Jane Austen, William Beckford, Aphra Behn, Daniel Defoe, Samuel Johnson, Ann Radcliffe, Sir Walter Scott, Mary Shelley, and Horace Walpole. One chapter is dedicated to each author, with listings categorized first as general studies, followed by listings pertaining to individual novels. Scholars will notice an eclectic collection of criticisms and analyses, ranging from "traditional scholarship" based in sociological, moral, or historical study which is generally patriarchal in outlook, to post-structuralist scholarship such as deconstructionism and feminism. Includes author and subject indexes. Written to be contiguous with The Victorian Novel.
