- Eighteenth-Century Fiction and the Reinvention of Wonder (Oxford University Press, 2014)
While it is a truism that the period’s literature is distinguished by its realism and air of probability, Eighteenth-Century Fiction and the Reinvention of Wonder argues that wonder is integral to–rather than antithetical to–the developing techniques of novelistic fiction.
