9780719078835: Charity and poverty in England, c.1680-1820: Wild and visionary schemes

This book explores responses to poverty in eighteenth-century England, with an eye to some of the odder manifestations of charity and poor relief. Whether discussing proposals for vast inland colonies or cosy firesides, men and women demonstrated that imagination, excitement and experiment were as important as systematic argument in making early-modern social policy. Ceremonies and material objects encapsulated ideas and attracted supporters; energy poured into realising imagined prospects in buildings, streetscapes and landscapes across England and beyond.

Charity and Poverty in England aims to shed fresh light on ideas and lived experience, on cultural worlds in which social relations were unevenly worked out. It analyses the settings in which gentlemen, magistrates, officials, pamphleteers, ladies and neighbours reacted to the poverty of others, and poor people asserted their own beliefs and experiences.

The book will be of interest to researchers in the fields of eighteenth-century cultural history and the history of social policy.

Book Description Manchester UP, 2009. Book Condition: New. Sarah Lloyd explores responses to poverty in 18th-century England with an eye to some of the odder manifestations of charity and poor relief. She looks to 'the outer limits of social thought and activity' - to initiatives such as Laurence Braddon's political arithmetic and collegiate cities or William Hanbury's tree plantations, and argues that such responses demonstrate the role of imagination in 18th-century social thinking.
