Synopsis

Infernal Quixote Pb by Grenby

In this anti-Jacobin (or anti-revolutionary) noven, Charles Lucas engages directly with the most pressing political issues of his day and establishes himself as one of the most forthright and engaging of all the British conservative writers who responded to the French Revolution and its aftermath.

Reviews

Charles Lucas's novel offers us a heady mix of social satire, religious polemic, gothic tropes, and trenchant critique of the dangers of revolution and the 'new philosophy.

.O. Grenby points out in the thoughtful introduction, The Infernal Quixote not only anticipates the Irish national tale and the historical fiction of Walter Scott, but also--in giving us an unconventional hero drawn from the lower ranks of society--highlights the complexity of the debates about class, gender, and nation that emerged in the turbulent post-Revolutionary period. The availability of The Infernal Quixote in this judiciously edited edition will inevitably expand our understanding of the intellectual climate of Britain and Ireland in the 1790s and early 1800s. -- Jacqueline Belanger, Cardiff University
