This is an impressive and lucid survey of eighteenth-century intellectual life, providing a real sense of the complexity of the age and of the cultural and intellectual climate in which imaginative literature flourished. It reflects on some of the dominant themes of the period, arguing against such labels as 'Augustan Age', 'Age of Enlightenment' and 'Age of Reason', which have been attached to the eighteenth-century by critics and historians.

From the Back Cover:

This new edition of James Sambrook's impressive and lucid survey of eighteenth-century intellectual life gives the reader a real sense of the complexity of the age and of the cultural and intellectual climate in which its literature grew and flourished.

Review:

Review of the First Edition:  "Sambrook is immensely generous in sharing his extensive knowledge, and this munificence continues into the chronology, the very useful bibliography and the set of mini- bibliographies of important authors...it is a pleasure to read."   Times Higher Education Supplement
