Macaulay's Life of Samuel Johnson
Thomas Babington Macaulay
0898757304
Mar 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This edition of Macaulay's Life of Samuel Johnson is unusually full of explanatory notes and illustrative material. Next to the study of Macaulay, the study of Johnson's remarkable life and commanding position in the history of English literature is of great importance. For this purpose, in addition to much matter in the notes taken from Johnson's Works and Boswell's Life, there has been added an appendix containing selections from the more interesting parts of Macaulay's Essay on Croker's Boswell (1831) and Carlyle's Essay on Boswell's Johnson (1832), together with an extract from Leslie Stephen's History of English Thought in the Eighteenth Century. The proofs of the Life in this edition were corrected by Macaulay himself.


Figures of Finance Capitalism: Writing, Class and Capital in Mid-Victorian Narratives
Borislav Knezevic
0415943183
February 2003
Textbook Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Figures of Finance Capitalism brings into focus the Victorian narratives by major middle-class writers that portray the workings of finance capitalism, placing such an interest in the context of middle-class misgivings about a class system still dominated by a patrician elite. This book illustrates the centrality of finance capitalism to the mid-Victorian middle-class social imagination by discussing a selection of major Victorian texts by Dickens, Gaskell, Thackeray and Macaulay. It draws on several new perspectives on British history, as offered in the work of historians such as Tom Nairn, David Cannadine, and P.J. Cain and A.G. Hopkins.

Macaulay's Essays on Milton and Addison
Thomas Babington Macaulay
0898758572
Apr 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The essays comprising this volume are eminently literary. They are the most distinctively literary of Macaulay’s essays. Many of Macaulay’s better known essays, such as the one on Clive, are historical and biographical, and yet are of unusual literary value. But the teacher of English literature will recognize at once the immense gains to the student of a comparative study of Milton and Addison, the two writers who stand highest in their respective departments of literature - especially when that study is directed by Macaulay.
