About this Item

viii, [4], 487, [3] pages. Frontis. Footnotes. Index. Signed with sentiment by author on half-title. DJ has wear, soiling, edge tears and chips. Minor staining and damp rippling at bottom edge near back of book. Some ink underlining noted. Howard Mumford Jones (April 16, 1892 - May 11, 1980) was an American intellectual historian, literary critic, journalist, poet, and professor of English at Harvard University. In 1965 Jones won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction for O Strange New World: American Culture-The Formative Years. He also authored Belief and Disbelief in American Literature (1967), The Age of Energy (1971), and many scholarly journal articles. The Howard Mumford Jones Professorship of American Studies at Harvard University is named in his honor. This is a discerning analysis and overview of two developments that have done much to shape modern society and modern sensibility: the political upheavals of the last two centuries, in particular the American and French Revolutions, and the elusive phenomenon known as Romanticism. With broad strokes and illustrative detail, he sketches the high culture of the Western world in the eighteenth century and the social and institutional framework on which it rested.
