London and the Making of Provincial Literature

Aesthetics and the Transatlantic Book Trade, 1800–1850

Joseph Rezek

The most influential Irish, Scottish and American fiction of the early 19th century – works such as Maria Edgeworth’s Castle Rackrent or Scott’s Waverley novels – were published or sold predominantly from London, and authors used various literary strategies to make the books more accessible to readers in England. Joseph Resek argues that this need to appeal to London shaped both provincial literatures and the history of modern aesthetics.
