These eighteen essays represents a new generation of eighteenth-century scholarship. Written in honour of Professor Roger Lonsdale of the University of Oxford, the contributions to Tradition in Transition focus on the three main areas of scholarship that Lonsdale has made his own: womenwriters, marginalized authors and texts, and the shape of the eighteenth-century canon of English Literature.

Editorial Reviews

`In its capaciousness, variety, common sense, and vivacity, Tradition in Transition is one of the greatest celebratory volumes in the history of the genre as well as a a major contribution to the whole of eighteenth-century studies ... masterful volume ... thoughtfully organized ... thisvolume sets a new standard for scholarly honesty, enthusiasm, acumen, and adventure. A Baedeker to a bafflingly dispersed period, it will never disappoint, will always direct, and will perpetually delight.'Kevin L, Cope, 1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries (1998)
