Jennifer Batt

  • An account of Stephen Duck's life, work, and place in literary culture which encompasses new developments in thinking about labouring class writing, Hanoverian court culture, and eighteenth century literature more generally.
  • The book draws extensively on contemporary archival sources, including eighteenth-century newspapers and magazines; manuscript verse and letters; and books and pamphlets.
  • Offers a new, evidence-based account of Duck's approach to writing, particularly in relation to his most important work 'The Thresher's Labour'.
