Recent years have witnessed a heightened interest in eighteenth-century literary journalism and popular culture. This book provides an account of the early periodical as a literary genre and traces the development of journalism from the 1690s to the 1760s, covering a range of publications by both well-known and obscure writers. The book's central theme is the struggle of eighteenth-century journalists to attain literary respectability and the strategies by which editors sought to improve the literary and social status of their publications.

This first critical collection on Delarivier Manley revisits the most heated discussions, adds new perspectives in light of growing awareness of Manley’s multifaceted contributions to eighteenth-century literature, and demonstrates the wide range of thinking about her literary production and significance. While contributors reconsider some well-known texts through her generic intertextuality or unresolved political moments, the volume focuses more on those works that have had less attention: dramas, correspondence, journalistic endeavors, and late prose fiction. The methodological approaches incorporate traditional investigations of Manley, such as historical research, gender theory, and comparative close readings, as well as some recently influential theories, like geocriticism and affect studies. This book forges new paths in the many underdeveloped directions in Manley scholarship, including her work’s exploration of foreign locales, the power dynamics between individuals and in relation to states, sexuality beyond heteronormativity, and the shifting operations and influences of genre. While it draws on previous writing about Manley’s engagement with Whig/Tory politics, gender, and queerness, it also argues for Manley’s contributions as a writer with wide-ranging knowledge of both the inner sanctums of London and the outer developing British Empire, an astute reader of politics, a sophisticated explorer of emotional and gender dynamics, and a flexible and clever stylist. In contrast to the many ways Manley has been too easily dismissed, this collection carefully considers many points of view, and opens the way for new analyses of Manley’s life, work, and vital contributions to the full range of forms in which she wrote.

This book discusses sex and death in the eighteenth-century, an era that among other forms produced the Gothic novel, commencing the prolific examination of the century’s shifting attitudes toward death and uncovering literary moments in which sexuality and death often conjoined. By bringing together various viewpoints and historical relations, the volume contributes to an emerging field of study and provides new perspectives on the ways in which the century approached an increasingly modern sense of sexuality and mortality. It not only provides part of the needed discussion of the relationship between sex, death, history, and eighteenth-century culture, but is a forum in which the ideas of several well-respected critics converge, producing a breadth of knowledge and a diversity of perspectives and methodologies previously unseen. As the contributors demonstrate, eighteenth-century anxieties over mortality, the body, the soul, and the corpse inspired many writers of the time to both implicitly and explicitly embed mortality and sexuality within their works. By depicting the necrophilic tendencies of libertines and rapacious villains, the fetishizing of death and mourning by virtuous heroines, or the fantasy of preserving the body, these authors demonstrate not only the tragic results of sexual play, but the persistent fantasy of necro-erotica. This book shows that within the eighteenth-century culture of profound modern change, underworkings of death and mourning are often eroticized; that sex is often equated with death (as punishment, or loss of the self); and that the sex-death dialectic lies at the discursive center of normative conceptions of gender, desire, and social power.

Ein schillerndes Epos über die Welt am Rande einer Zeitenwende. 1839: Nachdem China den vornehmlich von den Briten und deren Kolonien betriebenen Handel mit Opium nicht mehr dulden will, erklärt ihm Großbritannien den Krieg. Die Hind ist eines der Schiffe, die bei einem Angriff zum Einsatz kommen sollen, und segelt zu diesem Zweck von Bombay nach China. An Bord ist unter anderem Kesri Singh, ein Kommandant der britisch-ostindischen Armee, der eine Kompanie Soldaten befehligt; außerdem Zachary Reid, ein verarmter junger Seemann, der auf der Suche nach seiner verlorenen Liebe ist, und Shirin Moddie, die in China die Hinterlassenschaft ihres verstorbenen Mannes, eines Opiumhändlers, an sich nehmen will. Sie alle geraten schon bald in die Wirren der Opiumkriege, die in Chinas verheerender Niederlage und in der Annektierung Hongkongs durch Großbritannien enden werden. Eine vor Atmosphäre und Detailfreude flirrende, spannende und berührende Geschichte vor der Kulisse Indiens und Chinas, mit der Amitav Ghosh sein großes historisches Panorama über die Opiumkriege, die eine frühe Ära der Globalisierung markieren, fulminant vollendet.
