Abstract:

"The Manufacturers of Literature: Writing and the Literary Marketplace in Eighteenth-Century England explores transformations in literature over the course of the eighteenth century, focusing on detailed case studies of important writers and publishers, including Joseph Addison and Richard Steele, Alexander Pope, Samuel Johnson, the bookseller Robert Dodsley, and Frances Burney." "The book combines an examination of the network of material conditions of authorship and publishing during the century with literary readings in order to explore the mutually constitutive nature of literature, the material forces that influence its production, and the social world of readers."--Jacket.
