Poetry and Jacobite Politics in Eighteenth-Century Britain and Ireland by Professor Murray Pittock

Book Description

The aim of this book is to question assumptions about the nature of the Augustan era through an exploration of Jacobite ideology. Taking as its starting point the fundamental ambivalence of the Augustan concept the author studies canonical and non-canonical literature and uncovers the 'four nations' literary history of the period defined in terms of a struggle for control of the language of authority between Jacobite and Hanoverian writers. This struggle is seen to have crystallized Irish and Scottish opposition to the British state. The Jacobite cause generated powerful popular literature and the sources explored include ballads, broadsides and writing in Scots, Irish, Welsh and Gaelic. The author concludes that the literary history we inherit is built on the political outcome of the Revolution of 1688.

Books By Author Professor Murray Pittock

Culloden by Professor Murray Pittock Culloden, Hardback (July 2016)

The story of Culloden, one of the most important battles in Scottish history - how it was fought, how it has been remembered, and what it has come to mean

Material Culture and Sedition, 1688-1760 by Professor Murray Pittock Material Culture and Sedition, 1688-1760, Hardback (October 2013)

Material Culture and Sedition, 1688-1760 is a groundbreaking study of the ways in which material culture (and its associated designs, rituals and symbols) was used to avoid prosecution for treason and sedition in the British Isles. The fresh theoretical model it presents challenges existing accounts of the public sphere and consumer culture.

Scottish and Irish Romanticism by Professor Murray Pittock Scottish and Irish Romanticism, Paperback (May 2011)

In a challenge to existing accounts of Romanticism, Murray Pittock provides a broad re-reading of British Romanticism. Locating Scottish and Irish Romantic writing in the wider context of the British Isles, he explores the dialogue between national traditions through a detailed consideration of a range of Scottish, Irish, and English writers.
