Summary
"Dramatically expanding the boundaries of the British "Jacobin" novel, Conversion and Reform in the British Novel in the 1790s analyzes the works of a wide range of British reformists writing in the 1790s, including William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, Charlotte Smith, Mary Robinson, and Maria Edgeworth, who reshaped the conventions of contemporary fiction to position the novel as a progressive political tool. Rather than aiming to launch a bloody revolution, these authors worked to initiate social and political reform in such as women's right, abolition, the Jewish question, and the leveling of the class system in Britain by converting the general public, one reader at a time."--BOOK JACKET
