AMS Studies in the Eighteenth Century, No. 48
In A Singular Duality, Robert J. Frail delineates the complex but ordered progression
of ideas in literature that bound two nations, divided by politics and often by war, into
an orchestrated cultural collusion drawn from the emotive power of the memoir novel and
served by translators who understood the diversity of the European market.
Frail's topics range from the extraordinary success of the English memoir novel in French
literature carried out by Dutch publishing houses, to France and the American revolution
as seen from the perspective of intellectual and cultural history. Furthermore, he reflects
on such works of literature as Laclos's Les liaisons dangereuses, Sheridan's Memoirs
of Miss Sidney Bidulph, Diderot's La Religieuse, Montesquieu's Les lettres
persanes, and Rousseau's Julie, ou La Nouvelle Heloise.
