Making the Novel: Fiction and Society in Britain, 1660-1789

Making the Novel: Fiction and Society in Britain, 1660-1789 By Brean Hammond, Shaun Regan
2006 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 0333628535 | PDF | 1 MB


Hammond and Regan advance a new cultural reading of the formation of the British novel. Rejecting a teleological narrative of the genre's rise, the study presents a dynamic picture of the emergence of the novel, that focuses upon formal innovation, social engagement, and artistic and commercial competition.
