about

Professional Imaginative Writing in England, 1670-1740 sets out to provide an overview of the social, political, economic, and institutional context within which imaginative writing developed during the late 17th and 18th century. It was in this period that such writing became awidely-consumed commodity, as literacy improved, women entered the literary workplace in considerable numbers, newspapers and periodicals emerged as distinct forms, and the novel became a recognized literary form.
Brean Hammond is at University of Wales.

`Hammond's interesting and learned study of literary professionalism... a coherent picture of emerging professionalism... careful and wide-ranging study of authorship in an important period. A convincing narrative which has at its center the emergent figure of the professional writer.'Journal of English and Germanic Philology
