Details

Modern Antiques argues that the reinvention of the past was fundamental to the development of modernity in England during the long eighteenth century. Bringing together the fields of literary criticism, historiography, material culture studies, and book history, Kalter offers new interpretations of Dryden, Gray, and Walpole, showing how these authors appropriated contemporary historical research to create nostalgic and ironic alternatives to the present-modern antiques.
