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.

Are legal concepts of intellectual property and copyright related to artistic notions of invention and originality? Do literary and legal scholars have anything to learn from each other, or should the legal debate be viewed as separate from questions of aesthetics? Bridging what are usually perceived as two distinct areas of inquiry, this interdisciplinary volume begins with a reflection on the "origins" of literary and legal questions in the Enlightenment to consider their ramifications in the post-Enlightenment and contemporary world. Tying in to the growing scholarly interest in connections between law and literature, on the one hand, and to the contemporary interrogation of "originality" and "authorship," on the other hand, the present volume furthers research in the field by providing a dense study of the legal and historical context to re-examine our current assumptions about supposed earlier Enlightenment and Romantic ideals of individual authorship and originality.

Virginia Woolfs Gedanken zu Literatur und Leben Ihre Romane gehören zur Weltliteratur, ihre Tagebücher und autobiographischen Schriften sind berühmt. Aber als glänzende, höchst anregende Essayistin ist Virginia Woolf immer noch zu entdecken. Die leidenschaftliche Leserin schrieb viele ihrer Rezensionen und Betrachtungen für das renommierte ›Times Literary Supplement‹ und andere Zeitschriften.

Die beiden Textsammlungen ›Granit und Regenbogen‹ (Bd. 092568) und ›Das Totenbett des Kapitäns‹ (Bd. 092560), ausgewählt aus dem immensen essayistischen Werk, bilden den Abschluss der Ausgabe der Gesammelten Werke von Virginia Woolf.

Eine empfindsame Reise durch Frankreich und Italien

Der u. a. von Goethe, Nietzsche und Balzac bewunderte Laurence Sterne (1713-1768) wurde mit seinem grotesk-satirischen Riesenroman »Leben und Ansichten von Tristram Shandy, Gentleman« berühmt, einer in endlosen Abschweifungen und willkürlichen Zeitsprüngen erzählten Nicht-Biografie des Titelhelden. »Eine empfindsame Reise durch Frankreich und Italien« gehört zum Umfeld des »Tristram Shandy«, ohne unmittelbar an den Roman anzuschließen. Sterne treibt hier seine exzentrische Erzählweise auf die Spitze: Die Reise führt nicht nach Italien, eine reguläre Handlung gibt es nicht, dafür setzt der Text mit einer Frage ein und bricht am Ende mitten im Satz ab.
