Samuel Johnson's "general Nature": Tradition and Transition in Eighteenth-century Discourse

Sprednja platnica
University of Delaware Press, 1999 - 168 strani
This study illuminates the importance and meaning of the term author in eighteenth-century discourse from the perspective of its prominent usage by Samuel Johnson. It explains Johnson's employment of nature in his periodical essays, his qualified endorsement of the new science, and his commendation of Shakespeare's drama and other literary works on the basis of their just representation of general nature.
