Synopsis

This study brings a literary perspective to bear upon Edmund Burke's political writings. De Bruyn recontextualizes Burke's writings by exploring what the eighteenth century understood by the term `literature' and by demonstrating how thoroughly he relies on the dominant literary discourses of his time, especially the satire and georgic/didactic modes, in composing his speeches and polemics.
