The Practice of Quixotism: Postmodern Theory and Eighteenth-Century Women’s Writing

2006 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 1403974446 | PDF | 1 MB


The Practice of Quixotism models how to think simultaneously about postmodern theory and eighteenth-century texts.?The postmodern claim that we encounter “reality” only through cultural scripts of which we are unaware has a long history: eighteenth-century writers thought about this same possibility with the help of quixote figures, who view the “real” through texts they have read.? Focusing on unorthodox quixote narratives written by eighteenth-century women, many now popular in today’s classroom, The Practice of Quixotism will fascinate readers interested in recent theory, in eighteenth-century culture, in eighteenth-century women writers–or in the descendants of Don Quixote, who celebrated his 400th birthday in 2005.
