Tradition in Transition: Women Writers, Marginal Texts, and the Eighteenth-Century Canon

Alvaro Ribeiro and James G. Basker


These eighteen chapters represent a new generation of 18th-century scholarship. Written in honour of Professor Roger Lonsdale of the University of Oxford, the work contained in this book focuses on the three main areas of scholarship that Lonsdale has made his own: women writers, marginalized authors and texts, and the shape of the 18th-century canon of English literature.

Keywords: Professor Roger Lonsdale, women writers, marginalized authors, marginalized texts, English literature
