Swiftly Sterneward by W. B. Gerard

These thirteen essays have been collected to honor Melvyn New, Professor Emeritus, University of Florida, and are prefaced by a description of his scholarly career of more than forty years. Suggesting the wide-range of that career, the first eight essaysoffer various critical perspectives on a diverse group of eighteenth-century authors. Laurence Sterne, the primary focus of Professor New's scholarship, is the focus as well of the final five essays. Joseph G. Kronick takes the battle of the books as a starting point and provides a reading of Eliot in the shadow of Pope that reveals the fate of poetry to be a perpetual struggle with its modernity. E. Derek Taylor discovers an ironic allusion between two of Gainsborough's final paintings that invites the viewer to consider the ways that each painting both complicates and enhances the other, in a fashion similar to the ironic strategy of the final two chapters of Sterne's Sentimental Journey.

Taking up Sterne, Elizabeth Kraft bringstogether for reflection the eighteenth-century Christian author and the twentieth-century student of Cabbala, Gershom Scholem. Sterne's influence on abolitionist discourse in American popular media between 1788 and 1831 is the subject of W. B. Gerard's s
