Description - Economics as Literature by William Henderson

A range of economics writings which runs through the 19th century and beyond, is now largely ignored because its authors were women or because they favoured literary over scientific forms. This work re-examines some of the most interesting texts from within this tradition. The works considered include: stories by Maria Edgeworth and Harriet Martineau; dialogues by Jane Marcet and Thomas de Quincey; "imaginative" writing from Ruskin and Francis Edgeworth; and Keynes' "General Theory" which is locked within a 19th-century "tradition" of uniting science and art.
