4E Cognition and Eighteenth-Century Fiction

How the Novel Found its Feet

Karin Kukkonen

Cognition and Poetics

  • Applies the contemporary philosophical theory of 4E cognition to the eighteenth-century novel, forging new paths in Cognitive Poetics
  • Explores lesser-known works from Eliza Haywood, Charlotte Lennox, Sarah Fielding, and Frances Burney, and includes a discussion of Burney's manuscripts and letters
  • Models how cognitive approaches to literature can do historically-situated work with material that does not fit the usual standards of literary realism
