This talk by Mark Klnkead-Weekes is a simple survey of the main strands in eighteenth--century novel writing. Its aim is to show the literary tradition that Jane Austen built on and also the forms ...she chose to disregard. Mr. Kinkead-Weekes takes the novels of Defoe, Richardson, Fielding and Sterne as examples of four different approaches where the major emphasis is respectively on situation, drama, moral judgement, and the very nature of the novel form itself.
