Monatshefte commends “The Aesthetics of Kinship”

The Aesthetics of Kinship: Form and Family in the Long Eighteenth Century

by Heidi Schlipphacke

“Schlipphacke’s focus on dramatic tableaux and tableaux vivants, gesture, and props offers genuinely new ways of understanding the ways in which dramas and novels from around 1750 to 1820 depict—and, in depicting, imagine, suggest, and experiment with—affective ties that are not limited to the strictly biological.”
