Scholarly perspectives on the literature of the Restoration and eighteenth century have undergone dramatic shifts over the past sixty years, increasingly emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach to the various elements that influenced and modified the culture of the period. The first comprehensive guide to modern scholarship in the field, this annotated bibliography offers a wide-ranging survey of subjects that form the context of English literature from 1660 to 1800. The disciplines represented include political, social, and intellectual history; philosophy; science; aesthetics; education; and language in addition to literary criticism. The author begins with a thoughtful examination of the history of Restoration/eighteenth-century scholarship. Divided into 22 subject categories, the bibliography presents annotated listings of existing bibliographic sources and noteworthy books and articles published since the late 1920s. This authoritative new work allows the reader to explore the cultural climate that influenced the activity of writing and to understand the complex forces that shaped the period and its literature. The bibliography is an appropriate choice for literary reference collections in academic and public libraries.
