Description - Literature, Money and the Market by P. Delany
This volume argues that literary institutions have been saturated with hostility to commerce and the market that goes back to Plato. It traces the division in English culture between the prestige values of the aristocracy and the material values of the commercial class. The book takes a fresh look at both the representation of money in English literature and the economic situation of writers.
