Product Description

Book Description

Cambridge English Prose Texts are devoted to selections of non-fictional English prose of the late sixteenth to the mid seventeenth centuries. This volume centres on the great Revolution debate of the 1790s, inspired by the French Revolution. The debate consists of a series of works which depend for their meaning on one another, and upon the historical situation which gave them birth.

About the Author

Marilyn Butler (1937 2014) was a prominent scholar in eighteenth-century and Romantic studies, a groundbreaking practitioner and theorist of the historicist criticism of literary texts, and pioneering scholarly editor of hitherto marginalized women writers. Her widely acclaimed publications include Maria Edgeworth: A Literary Biography (1972), Jane Austen and the War of Ideas (1975), Peacock Displayed: A Satirist in his Context (1979), Romantics, Rebels and Reactionaries: English Literature and its Background, 1760 1830 (1981), and seminal scholarly editions of works by Mary Wollstonecraft, Maria Edgeworth, Mary Shelley and Jane Austen. She was King Edward VII Professor of English Literature at the University of Cambridge from 1986 to 1993, and Rector of Exeter College, Oxford, from 1993 to 2004. Mapping Mythologies, finished in 1984, but never hitherto published, is the first volume of a never-completed larger project on literary mythologies between 1730 and 1830. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
