Romances of Free Trade

British Literature, Laissez-Faire, and the Global Nineteenth Century

Ayse Celikkol

  • Argues for the lasting importance of the romance genre in the Victorian period
  • Draws on the new economic criticism to provide fresh perspectives on works by Bronte, Dickens, Scott, and others
  • Goes beyond traditional works of the period to examine the then-popular naval fiction of Frederick Marryat and Harriet Martineau's writings on laissez-faire economics
