Serial Forms

The Unfinished Project of Modernity, 1815-1848

Clare Pettitt

  • Re-periodises the nineteenth century, challenging conventional disciplinary periodisation
  • Develops original theories of modernity and seriality whilst remaining close to historical evidence
  • Questions the concept of the 'book' in this period and rethinks the politics of reception
  • Offers new and exciting readings of familiar authors such as Scott, Byron, Dickens, and Gaskell
