“The Printed Reader” “exemplifies the best kind of scholarship”

The Printed Reader: Gender, Quixotism, and Textual Bodies in Eighteenth-Century Britain

by Amelia Dale

The Printed Reader exemplifies the best kind of scholarship, combining immense learning about material culture with astute close textual readings, readings attentive at once to sense and nuance, as well as to the materiality of the page and of print technology. The many new understandings that emerge from this alembic are adroitly introduced back into the crucible of scholarly conversations on all the many interconnected aspects of eighteenth-century literature and culture which it has brought together.”
