The Art of Oliver Goldsmith
More than two centuries after his death, Oliver Goldsmith is as perplexing to a post-modernist age as he was to his own contemporaries, many of whom regarded him as an 'inspired idiot.' Nonetheless, he has, by the grace and elegance of his writing, earned the admiration of generations of readers. This collection of new essays offers a timely re-evaluation not only of Goldsmith's acknowledged masterpieces but also of his less well-known works, and the detailed critical attention given to particular texts is supplemented by studies setting Goldsmith firmly in the context of eighteenth-century literary culture.
