Critical Essays on British LiteratureJames Nagel, Series Editor, University of GeorgiaG. K. Hall's three series of critical essays give comprehensive coverage of major authors worldwide and throughout history. The full range of literary traditions and schools is represented. Each new volume is carefully conceived and developed to fill a gap in the literary criticism available today.Volume editors are established authorities on the lives, works, and critical receptions of their subjects. They are uniquely qualified to ensure the spectrum of critical controversies, trends, and techniques inspired by their subjects in their own countries and abroad, in their own eras and today.Each volume features:an introduction which provides the reader with a lucid overview of criticism from its beginnings--illuminating controversies, evaluating approaches, and sorting out the schools of thought the most influential reviews and the best of reprinted scholarly essaysa section devoted exclusively to reviews and reactions by the subject's contemporariesoriginal essays, new translations, and revisions commissioned especially for the seriespreviously unpublished materials--such as interviews, lost letters, and manuscript fragments a bibliography of the subject's writings and interviews a name and subject indexSterne's major literary works, Tristram Shandy and A Sentimental Journey, celebrate the fullness of life even as they expose the limitations, hypocracies, and the pettiness of human existence. These as well as his earlier satires, sermons, and political writings illustrate a complex view of sexuality which shocked many eighteenth century readers. This collection of 18 essays is organized around four subjects, including: Sterne's focus on intertextual issues: the growing tendency to see Sterne within a long tradition of skeptical thought: the erotic Sterne dealing with feminist and gender issues: and the aspect of Sterne concerned with ethics. These essays combine to present an author and his work steeped in the satiric literature of the past and projecting a strong ethical bias into the future.
