Anne F. Widmayer Through focusing on the works of four celebrated playwright-novelists (Behn, Manley, Congreve, Fielding), Anne F. Widmayer explores how the increased interiority of their prose characters is ridiculed by the use of techniques drawn from the theatre to throw into doubt the novel’s ability to portray an unmediated ‘reality’.
Ed. Jean-François Dunyach and Ann Thomson Long since ignored or sidelined, the Scottish Enlightenment is now a controversial topic – damned by some as a conservative movement objectively allied to the enemies of enlightenment, placed centre stage by others as the archetype of what is meant by ‘Enlightenment’. In this book leading experts reassess the issue by exploring both the eighteenth-century intellectual developments taking place within Scotland and the Scottish contribution to the Enlightenment as a whole.
