Abstract

Book REvIEWS in the novel's ascendancy, and Brooke's bilingualism, concludes McMurran, subjects nationalisms to the "corrective forces of sympathy, and of cosmopolitan critique" (156). There is much to fascinate and inform the reader in this volume that will, no doubt, prove to be a valuable resource for academics and scholars of eighteenth-century literature and of cultural history.
