The Nonsense Club

Literature and Popular Culture, 1749-1764

Lance Bertelsen

In this comprehensive study of the Nonsense Club--whose number included Charles Churchill, Bonnell Thornton, George Colman, William Cowper, and Robert Lloyd--Bertelsen uses interdisciplinary methods to create a more complex understanding of the relationship between literature and culture in the era of Hogarth, Johnson, and Wilkes.
