Through the figure of the romance reader, the author tells a new story of eighteenth-century reading.

Through discussions of Locke, Behn, Shaftesbury, Hume, and Richardson, this book traces the idea of romance as, in the process of engendering resistance, it comes nonetheless to define the empiricist mind as the reading mind."@en ;
