Literary Imposture and Eighteenth-Century Knowledge

The Tradition of Literary Faker in England from Marana to Goldsmith

Elena Butoescu

EUR 27,00
Disponible Ajouter au panier
What do English literary frauds tell us about eighteenth-century knowledge and the advancement of learning? To what extent did the literary works published in Britain in the crucial decades between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries create a fertile ground for the event of the novel? This book considers literary forgery as a type of literature which came out as a reaction against the establishment and the institution of canonical literature. The purpose of this book is threefold. First, it is meant to trace the history and the evolution of literary forgery. Second, it aims to examine the conditions that enabled literary forgers to be credited by prominent intellectual figures and academic institutions as trustworthy men of letters. The third goal is to link these issues to the formation of the novel and the English literary canon in order to investigate how these forgeries influenced eighteenth-century thinking and writing.
