Artikelomschrijving

This revised Norton Critical Edition restores the original full title to the 1771 epistolary and picaresque novel. In choosing supporting materials, Evan Gottlieb emphasizes the growing recognition of Smollett as both a major British author and a central player in eighteenth-century London as vibrant publishing world. In his last and finest novel, Tobias Smollett uses multiple letter writers to create a very funny and nearly kaleidoscopic vision of life in mid eighteenth-century Britain. As his protagonists travel about the countryside on their quest to restore patriarch Matthew Bramble as health, they unwittingly succeed in uniting Britain across boundaries of nation, class, religion, and gender. The text of this Norton Critical Edition is again based on the first edition of 1771. It is accompanied by explanatory footnotes, illustrations by Thomas Rowlandson for the 1793 edition, and a map by Charles Scavey. A new Backgrounds and Contextsö section includes selections from Smollett as popular early poetry as well as important later nonfiction writing on history and the novel and the Anglo-Scottish Union, among others. Criticismö is divided into two sections and presents the most important reviews and scholarly assessments of The Expedition of Humphry Clinker. Early Reviews and Criticismö collects four major reviews from 1771 along with Sir Walter Scott as 1821 preface to the novel. Contemporary Criticismö focuses on recent scholarship, with its emphasis on Smollett as connection and relevance to topics of critical interest, including nationalism, colonialism, the history of the novel, gender studies, and the histories of religion and medicine. Contributors include Eric Rothstein, John Zomchick, Robert Mayer, Charlotte Sussman, David Weed, Evan Gottlieb, Tara Ghoshal Wallace, Misty G. Anderson, and Annika Mann. A chronology of Smollett as life and work and a selected bibliography are also included.
