English Faculty Books
  • Rachel K Carnell, Cleveland State University
A modern critical edition of the works of Delarivier Manley, providing complete texts of all works, re-set with scholarly annotation. Her work bridges the sphere of literary and political history and this edition should be of interest to academics in women's writing and history, eighteenth-century studies and the history of journalism. Manley is on the cusp of rediscovery, as over the last decade and a half, scholars have touched on her significance as a political journalist, playwright and novelist and examined her work within its political and historical contexts. An annotated edition of The New Atalantis is reprinted here along with current findings on Manley's work as a political propagandist and the most recent scholarship on her part in the history of the novel. Includes all of Manley's known journalism Brings scholarship up to date on The New Atlantis, first republished over ten years ago by Pickering & Chatto
