This title defines literature of the 18th century as a literature written and received as public conversation. Moyra Haslett discusses and challenges conventional ways of reading the period, particularly in relation to ideas of the public sphere. Key texts (including "The Dunciad", "Gulliver's Travels" and "Pamela") are read through the context of their imitations and counter fictions, and the new genres of the periodical, published letters and the novel are discussed as textual equivalents of coterie culture.

Author Biography

MOYRA HASLETT lectures in the School of English at Queen's University, Belfast. Her previous publications include Marxist Literary and Cultural Theories which is also part of the Transitions series.
