This study examines the autobiographical writing of Samuel Richardson, Laurence Sterne, and David Hume, who chronicled the peculiarly intimate relationships between the texts they produced and the social lives they lived. Each relied on a language of feeling to represent social bonds they considered necessary, discovering, through their writing, a sociability dependent on the communication of passions and sentiments. This discovery, Mullan argues, played a critical role in the development of the eighteenth-century fiction now called sentimental.

"Mullan has provided a stimulating study which is not afraid to explore complex themes and be provocative in its judgements."--Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1990. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. With the rise of the novel in the mid-eighteenth century came the rise of sentimentalism. While the fondness for sentiment embarrassed later literary critics, it originally legitimized a morally suspect phenomenon: the novel. This book describes that legitimation, yet it looks beyond the narrowly literary to the lives and expressed philosophies of some of the major writers of the age, showing the language of feeling to be a resource of philosophers like David Humeand Adam Smith, as much as novelists like Richardson and Sterne.
