Samenvatting

Thomas O. Beebee offers a history of epistolary fiction as a major phenomenon practiced across Europe from the Renaissance to the mid-nineteenth century. He shows how epistolary fiction appropriated the status and power the letter had already acquired, and goes on to explore a number of related discourses and themes, including the letter writing manual, self-referential aspects of the letter, news and travel reporting, the relationship between letters and gender, and historically-specific letter writing by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century authors including Austen, Balzac, and Dostoevsky. There is a bibliography of major European epistolary fiction to 1850.

Recensie(s)

Thomas O. Beebee's Epistolary Fiction in Europe 1500-1850 is a vital contribution to literary history and to studies of genre and narrative...Epistolary Fiction in Europe is an impressive achievement...I especially admired his ability to synthesize and contextualize literary history, feminist theory, and critical theory in a compelling, erudite, and indispensible study. Comparative Literature Beebee's is a very dense and informative study, which also offers some real gems of literary interpretation, presented almost casually along the way...an important resource for anyone intersted in the cultural and literary history of letters. L'Esprit Createur In Epistolary Fictin in Europe, 1500-1850, Tomas O. Beebee offers a fascinating and theoretically sophisticated analysis... Studies in English Literature Indispenable...The research that has gone into this book is remarkable. The Comparatist
