Gleaning Modernity: Earlier Eighteenth-Century Literature and the Modernizing Process
Author: Eric Rothstein
Gleaning Modernity shows how earlier eighteenth-century literary texts might have eased the way for Britain's increasing Modernity. They allowed Modern scenarios to be played out imaginatively, as simulations for experimental, predictive ends. The process spoke to the needs and desires of readers in a world of rapid, managed change. Along with providing original readings of such major texts as Gulliver's Travels and Clarissa, this study enlarges our sense of the Modernizing process.
