Sarah Lloyd explores responses to poverty in 18th-century England with an eye to some of the odder manifestations of charity and poor relief. She looks to 'the outer limits of social thought and activity' - to initiatives such as Laurence Braddon's political arithmetic and collegiate cities or William Hanbury's tree plantations, and argues that such responses demonstrate the role of imagination in 18th-century social thinking.
