Henry Mackenzie (1745-1831) was a Scottish novelist and miscellaneous writer. Mackenzie was educated at the Royal High School and the University of Edinburgh. His first and most famous work, The Man of Feeling, was published anonymously in 1771, and met with instant success. It is considered a seminal work in the development of the novel as an art form. The "Man of Feeling" is a weak creature, dominated by a futile benevolence, who goes up to London and falls into the hands of people who exploit his innocence. The first of his dramatic pieces, The Prince of Tunis, was produced in Edinburgh in 1773 with a certain measure of success. Some of his literary reminiscences were embodied in his Account of the Life and Writings of John Home, Esq. (1822). He also wrote a Life of Doctor Blacklock, prefixed to the 1793 edition of the poet's works.

From the Back Cover:

The Man of Feeling is unquestionably among the most important and influential works of eighteenth-century sentimental fiction. The novel follows Harley, the eponymous “man of feeling” and impoverished aristocrat, as he travels from his rural estate to London and back in a reluctant quest for financial advancement and more heartfelt quest for kindred spirits. In addition to presenting a remarkable gallery of characters, Harley’s story gives a profound sense of the historical changes transforming the economy, landscape, and social relations of eighteenth-century England and Scotland.

This Broadview edition’s critical introduction and rich selection of appendices situate The Man of Feeling in the context of the period’s intellectual debates on sentiment, sympathy, and the novel. Contextual documents include contemporary reviews of the novel, selections from Mackenzie’s correspondence and journalism, and related contemporary writings by David Hume, Adam Smith, Sir Walter Scott, and Laurence Sterne.

About the Author:

Renowned Scottish novelist, essayist, playwright and poet. Henry Mackenzie was a leading figure of the Scottish Enlightenment. Most famous for his sentimental work “The Man of Feeling”, he also wrote a number of verses and romantic ballads.
