Rakes, Highwaymen, and Pirates

The Making of the Modern Gentlemen in the Eighteenth Century

Erin Mackie

Discussing the masculine characters in literary works by writers including Richardson, Boswell, John Gay and Rochester, this study explores the emergence of the polite English gentleman during the 18th century and argues that the history of this archetype of modern masculinity is inseparable from that of its outlaw contemporaries, the rake, the highwayman and the pirate. Slightly off-mint.
