Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
Sensibility and Economics in the Novel, 1740-1800 argues that the sentimental novel, usually seen as a 'feminine' genre concentrating exclusively on emotional response, is in fact actively involved in contemporary economic and political debates. Introducing works of economic theory alongside sentimental fiction, Gillian Skinner shows how discourses of sentimentalism are closely related to the developing discourses of economics in the period. Both discourses unite in the representation of the working woman in sentimental fiction, a figure hitherto ignored but vital to understanding the emergence of characters (largely, although not exclusively, female) designed to effect an unprecedented union of sensibility, femininity and economic ability. Spanning the period encompassing the rise, heyday and decline of sentimentalism, the book considers how the trajectory of the movement affected the sentimental novel's treatment of economic issues and their relations to discourses of sensibility and femininity, and assesses the impact of the pressures of the post-Revolutionary 1790s on these areas.
