Selected Writings of Daniel Defoe

Selected Writings of Daniel Defoe - James T. Boulton - Régikönyvek
(0 vélemény)

Selected Writings of Daniel Defoe JAMES T. BOULTON Professor of English Studies, University of Birmingham Paradoxically Defoe is diminished by his popularity as the author of a handful of important novels, since the remainder of his voluminous writings suffer undue neglect. Fully to understand him he should be taken whole but his authorship of over 50o publications — the Review, which normally appeared thrice weekly for over nine years, counting as one — renders this feat wellnigh impossible. The purpose of this selection, then, is to enable the reader to make or renew the acquain- tance of Defoe on some of his favourite topics such as trade and poli- tics, manners and morality, in poetry as well as in prose, and in works like A True Relation of the Apparition of One Mrs Veal and Memoirs of a Cavalier which are characteristic blends of fact and fiction. Equipped with the insights possible from this sample, the reader — it is hoped — will return to the major novels with a keener appreciation of their distinctive quality and a livelier sense of their author and his defiant adherence to Reason Nature', and Experience'. Both as man and novelist Defoe has received a great deal of critical attention over the last 4o years. His language and rhetoric have, however, been relatively disregarded ; for this reason the introductory essay is devoted to these aspects of his achievement. Also issued in hard covers
