About the Authors
  • This is the most comprehensive account to date of the history of literary criticism in Britain and Europe between 1660 and 1800. Unlike previous histories, it is not just a chronological survey, but a multi-disciplinary study of how the understanding of literature in the modern era was shaped by developments in intellectual, cultural and social history. It provides an authoritative historical overview in all areas of literary studies. Extensive bibliographies supply detailed guidance for further research.

    • This comprehensive and multidisciplinary volume is now available in paperback
    • International in both coverage and authorship
    • Covers both theory and practice, the concept of literature in general and individual genres
