Editorial Reviews


'Min Wild's adroit and witty scholarship is a revelation. Her analysis of identity, satire, politics, and gender in The Midwife, Christopher Smart's explosive monthly magazine of 1750-53, makes for a compelling case study of commercial authorship and imaginative disruption in eighteenth-century print culture, and brilliantly dispels the assumption that journalism and satire stagnated after the fall of Walpole. Wild adds a major new dimension to our understanding of Smart: not only, as Donald Davie famously proposed, "the greatest English poet between Pope and Wordsworth", but also one of the most creative, and creatively subversive, journalists in the new age of periodical print'. --This text refers to the Unknown Binding edition.
