In the eighteenth century, the novel became established as a popular literary form all over Europe

In the eighteenth century, the novel became established as a popular literary form all over Europe. Britain proved an especially fertile ground, with Defoe, Fielding, Richardson and Burney as early exponents of the novel form. Rather than present its history as a linear progression, April London gives an original new structure to the field, organizing it through three broad thematic clusters ?? identity, community and history. Within each of these themes, she explores the central tensions of eighteenth-century fiction: Between secrecy and communicativeness, independence and compliance, solitude and family, cosmopolitanism and nation-building.

The book introduces important elements that have often been given insufficient emphasis: the central place of the garden and landscaped park in the taste of patrons and builders and the influence of both French and Industrial revolutions on eighteenth-century art.

Once again, this book was wonderful and very instructional. As a docent in a museum, it has been helpful to read this series of books to review important concepts that continue to please art lovers.

Jones manages to focus in on the most basic parts of 18th Cent. art, from its light-hearted Rococo beginnings to its more serious-minded and sometimes political NeoClassicism. What he lacks in detail he more than makes up for by writing in an accessible, straight-forward prose that doesn't require a Master's Degree in Art History to be understood. He provides numerous illustrations, many of which (unfortunately) are not in color, and he also touches on major accomplishments in architecture and landscape design. This book is a great introduction for anyone interested in a study of 18th cent. art or even for the curious layman, but it is probably too general for serious researchers.
