The focus of this book is the period 1717-1770, during which nostalgia was just beginning to emerge as a cultural concept. Utilizing psychoanalysis, feminist, and materialist theories, this book examines representations of bodies and landscapes in the cultural production of the early- to mid-eighteenth century. With considerable social anxiety surrounding changes in the structure of the family, the control of bodies within the family, and ownership and access to the land, nostalgia generated narratives that became the richly textured novels and long poems of the eighteenth century. In Samuel Richardson's "Clarissa, or the History of a Young Lady" (1747-48), social anxieties are played out on the body of Clarissa Harlowe; female passion is controlled in Pope's "Eloisa to Abelard" (1717), and Jean-Jacques Rousseau's "Julie, ou la Nouvelle Heloise" (1761); questions of domesticity and family are explored in Oliver Goldsmith's "The Vicar of Wakefield" (1760); and an alternative domestic structure is proposed in Sarah Scott's "A Description of Millenium Hall" (1762). Judith Broome is Assistant Professor of English at Austin Peay State University.

Book Description Bucknell University Press, Lewisburg, 2007. Hardback/Cloth. Condition: New. 1st Edition. 192pp . [In stock in Australia, for immediate delivery] The focus of Fictive Domains is on the period 1717-1770, during which nostalgia was just beginning to emerge as a cultural concept. Utilising psychoanalysis, feminist, and materialist theories, this book examines representations of bodies and landscapes in the cultural production of the early- to mid-18th century. With considerable social anxiety surrounding changes in the structure of the family, the control of bodies within the family, and ownership and access to the land, nostalgia generated narratives that became the richly textured novels and long poems of the 18th century. In Samuel Richardson's’Clarissa, or the History of a Young Lady’ (1747-48), social anxieties are played out on the body of Clarissa Harlowe; female passion is controlled in Pope's’Eloisa to Abelard' (1717), and Jean-Jacques Rousseau's’Julie, ou la Nouvelle Heloise’ (1761); questions of domesticity and family are explored in Oliver Goldsmith's’The Vicar of Wakefield’ (1760); and an alternative domestic structure is proposed in Sarah Scott's ‘A Description of Millenium Hall’ (1762). Clearly written and compellingly theorised, Fictive Domains addresses a wide range of texts in landscape theory, sentimental literature, and medical discourse. It will appeal to many working in 18th-century studies, women's studies, and cultural studies. Judith Broome is Assistant Professor of English at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.
