This dissertation explores the roles providence, reading, and humor play in the construction of this "sympathetic self." While accepting that empirical experience was important in shaping the self, children's writers foregrounded specific types. For example, they saw most experiences as God-given and thus as part of a divine plan. The agency their own works had was thus put in peril. On the other hand, they saw reading as having a profound effect on children and portrayed numerous child characters as being affected by touching or shocking stories. Finally, while surprising to us today, sympathy was not entirely about tears and charity---it was also about violent humor. Eighteenth-century children's writers employed a style of humorous didacticism to convey the lessons of benevolence and collectivity. Part of learning to read "sensibly" was learning to construct an impartial spectator who could reflect on one's other selves and other people
