Rousseau in England. Englightenment, Revolution and Romanticism

A conference on British reactions to the life and writings of Jean Jacques Rousseau in the C18th.

From the moment Rousseau first came to prominence in France, in the 1750s, his writings aroused interest in England. The publication of La Nouvelle Héloise , Emile and (after his death) his Confessions , attracted a wide readership. His reputation was then further enhanced (or vilified) by the association of his ideas with the French Revolution. This conference examines the remarkable variety of British reactions to his life and writings, both during his lifetime and among the next two generations.
A Conference Sponsored by the School of Arts, Middlesex University and the Institute of English Studies
