Synopsis

Vagabond, the Pb by Verhoeven

W.M. Verhoeven's edition of George Walker's The Vagabond is an essential text for scholars and readers of eighteenth-century and Romantic literature. -- Carol Houlihan Flynn, Tufts University

Reviews

The Vagabond is a vibrant counterrevolutionary polemic that illuminates a wide range of political controversy in the 1790s--the French Revolution crisis, domestic reform, transatlantic emigration, and the era's heated debates on human nature and its troubling propensity for violence. This accessible edition brings to life for modern readers the novel's turbulent political and philosophical contexts through its wide-ranging introduction and well-researched set of contemporary materials. Expertly edited and vividly presented through these contemporary contexts, The Vagabond is a must-read for those interested in the popular phenomenon of the conservative Romantic-period novel. -- Adriana Craciun, Birkbeck College, University of London
