Description

From the Longman Cultural Editions series, The Castle of Otranto and The Man of Feeling, edited by Laura Mandell, presents a lively pairing of mid-eighteenth century works that mark a watershed in the history of the novel.

These short novels, published within the same decade–Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto (1764) and Henry Mackenzie’s The Man of Feeling (1771)–helped produce the turn from social realism to sentimentality and strangeness that will characterize works of the Romantic era as well as popular novels, Gothic spectacles (including film), and all literary works interested in modern notions of individualism and human sympathy. 

Handsomely produced and affordably priced, each Cultural Edition consists of the complete text of an important literary work, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, supplemented by helpful annotations, accompanied by a table of significant dates and a guide for further study, then followed by contextual materials that reveal the conversations and controversies of its historical moment.

One Longman Cultural Edition can be packaged at no additional cost with any volume of The Longman Anthology of British Literature by Damrosch et al, or at a discount with any other Longman textbook.
