Abstract

970 Biography 24.4 (Fall 2001) surprising that Hume collapses various audiences and markets into an unproblematic field of “culture” or “society.” Because of its intense focus on a single form, Hume’s study will be of most use in conjunction with other texts. As a companion to studies of death and mourning more generally, its cataloguing of a range of obituaries will be invaluable. Similarly, in tandem with studies of the rise and dissemination of various periodicals, Hume’s study will provide grounding in an area that has been much understudied. And as a supplement to the developing field of the biography and the autobiography, Hume’s study will be of value to those scholars interested in how everyday life was given form and shape in the pub- lic sphere.
