9780198126706: The Intelligencer

In 1728-1729, Jonathan Swift and his friend Thomas Sheridan anonymously published the Intelligencer, a trenchant and often witty commentary on the Irish social and political scene in the year before the publication of A Modest Proposal. The first collected edition of the Intelligencer since 1730, this volume presents the rare original Dublin pamphlets, including full commentary and appendices based on contemporary broadsides, newspapers, and manuscripts, and a fresh bibliographical analysis of the work's textual transmission.

About the Author:

James Woolley is at Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania.

Review:


"Woolley's edition is superb in every way--it is truly a model of editorial scholarship....Woolley has at last made [the Intelligencer] fully accessible, establishing once and for all its interest and value and providing the contextual and textual information necessary to full appreciation of it....Woolley's edition is an admirable achievement, and it is unlikely that any other will ever supersede it."--Eighteenth-Century Studies


"A scholarly tour de force, displaying state-of-the-art textual criticism and excellent and generous annotation."--Studies in English Literature 1500-1900


"[A] superb edition....James Woolley's edition of the Intelligencer is handsome, erudite, and deeply considerate of its readers. It will be a source of inspiration for scholars and critics alike....The Intelligencer reminds most of an extremely well-designed house, light and airy, crammed with interesting objects, but absolutely uncluttered."--Journal of English and Germanic Philology


"This edition of The Intelligencer, with its extensive introduction, superb apparatus, deatiled bibliographical and textual notes, extensive appendices and fine index, is a model of modern scholarship which should facilitate the emergence of a fuller appreciation of the journal's significance and a clearer view of Swift's and Sheridan's economic thinking. The centuries of neglect The Intelligencer has experienced are over."--Irish Historical Review


"This edition of The Intelligencer has been long awaited and the wait has been worthwhile for it is impossible to imagine the task better done."--Eighteenth-Century Ireland

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1993. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In 1728-9, Jonathan Swift and his friend Thomas Sheridan anonymously published the Intelligencer. This Dublin periodical offered trenchant and often witty commentary on the Irish social and political scene in the year before A Modest Proposal. The frequently anthologized review of The Beggar s Opera (no. 3) is not only the best contemporary criticism of it but also Swift s central pronouncement on satire. Several essays lash important enemies, anger being always a great creative stimulus to both Swift and Sheridan. This is the first collected edition of the Intelligencer since 1730. It is based on the rare original Dublin pamphlets, each known copy of which has been collated. Full commentary and appendices draw upon contemporary pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, and manuscripts to site the Intelligencer papers in the personal, social, and political controversies in which they are engaged. There is also a fresh bibliographical analysis of the Intelligencer s textual transmission. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198126706
