              The Victim of Fancy was first published in December 1787 and, despite favourable reviews, has not been published since. Cook's new scholarly edition of this forgotten novel will be of paramount importance in allowing new insights into the form of the sentimental novel as it actua...lly existed in the 1780s, and not as it is often perceived.

              The Lives of Jonathan Swift

              The Lives of Jonathan Swift (Hardback, Contains 3 hardbacks)

              Contemporaries were mesmerized by the outrageous wit of Jonathan Swift (1667--1745), a writer still widely regarded as the greatest satirist of all time. Soon after Swift's death, his friends and enemies raced to publish the definitive account of the Dean of St Patrick's. Now, Ro...utledge brings these major works together for the first time in a new, three-volume, facsimile collection, supplemented with a full introduction, bibliographies, and other textual apparatus. The collection's editor avers that these highly influential biographies of one of the leading literary figures of his generation remain incompletely understood. The persistence of a number of myths can be traced back to these studies of Swift, including his own pseudo-biographical fragment on his early life. It is crucial that many of these biographies were written or commissioned by friends and allies of Swift and that some were written--or were informed by--his enemies. The collection's editor makes clear that the lives of Swift have a strongly interdependent relationship and, by bringing these studies together in one easy-to-use reference resource, scholars will more readily be able to trace the perambulations of specific anecdotes and biographical readings, and better understand how Johnson's defining picture of Swift emerged. Volume I of the collection opens with an extended introductory account of the history of biographies and biographical criticism of Swift in the eighteenth century and beyond. The volume reproduces Lord Orrery's notorious 'Judas-biography', the Remarks on the Life and Writings of Dr Jonathan Swift (1752), and a little-known book-length response, A Letter from a Gentleman in the Country, to his Son in the College of Dublin (1752--3), and, finally, the entry on Swift in Cibber's multivolume collection The Lives of the Poets (1753). The second volume includes the largely overlooked Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Jonathan Swift, DD (1752), a freely adapted plagiarism of Orrery'

              As he nears his 250th birthday, where does Sir Walter Scott stand now? Is the author who was once The Great Unknown unknown again? or is his cultural legacy still a deeply-rooted, recurrent source of inspiration for reworking into myriad new forms, for new audiences, and for very... different times. This special issue of Studies in Scottish Literature, guest-edited by Daniel Cook and Lucy Wood, comprises thirteen newly-commissioned essays and an afterword, based on conference papers delivered at the University of Dundee in April 2017. After the editors' introduction to the continuing commemoration and creative reworking of Scott's work, the essays are organized in four sections: Scott and the Theatre, with essays by Mary C. Nestor, Barbara Bell, and Paula Sledzinska; Scott and History, with essays by Lucy Wood, John Williams, and Stephen Basdeo; Scott and Others, with essays by David Selfe, Juliet Shields, Camilla Cassidy, and Celine Sabiron; and Scott's Afterlives, with essays by Fiona Robertson, George S. Williams, and Christopher Murray, with an afterword by Christopher Murray describes new reworkings of Scott's work in comics format from the Dundee Comics Creative Space. Founded in 1963, Studies in Scottish Literature, the first refereed scholarly journal in its field, remains a leading forum for scholarly discussion and research. Edited by Patrick Scott and Tony Jarrells, of the University of South Carolina, with the support of a distinguished international advisory board, the journal publishes articles on all periods of Scottish literature. Daniel Cook is Senior Lecturer in 18th & 19th Century Literature and Associate Director of the Centre for Scottish Culture at the University of Dundee, University of Dundee. Lucy Wood is an affiliate with the Abbotsford Trust, in heritage education, and won the 2017 G. Ross Roy Medal for her Edinburgh PhD on Scott's Antiquarian-ism.
