Modern Novel Writing or the Elegant Enthusaist by William Beckford

Book Description

First published in 1796 under the pseudonym Lady Harriet Marlow, Modern Novel Writing ridicules the sentimental and sensational novels of the day, and especially the productions of William Lane's Minerva Press; however, it is also a political satire, attacking the Tory party and its leader, William Pitt the Younger, for the war with France, repressive legislation and neglect of the poor. This is the first scholarly edition to be published and includes a comprehensive introduction and notes.
