Show Summary Details


The chapter focuses on the unprecedented expansion in both the production and consumption of print that marked these years. Writers who knew themselves to be addressing an anonymous mass readership responded by developing in prose or in verse a manner that suggested intimate address. This chapter seeks to explain why a mass‐produced literature directed to an anonymous readership should prize so highly the local, and cultivate so assiduously the intimate.
