Abstract

In Samuel Richardson and the Theory of Tragedy: Clarissa‘s Caesuras, J.A. Smith offers a new interpretation of this classic eighteenth-century epistolary novel through an exploration of theories of tragedy, focusing on the pause or caesura between tragedy striking and its consequences. This is a dense, detailed yet accessibly written book that breathes new life into scholarship on Richardson, writes Danni Glover.
