In the half century before Walter Scott's Waverley , dozens of popular novelists produced historical fictions for circulating libraries. This book examines eighty-five popular historical novels published between 1762 and 1813, looking at how the conventions of the genre developed through a process of imitation and experimentation.
ANNE H. STEVENS is an assistant professor in the department of English at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA.
