Solid hardcover.; "This book is the first study of the role of "fate" in English fiction. I am not primarily concerned with developing a comprehensive definition of fate, nor with what we today may mean by the word or concept of fate, but with the representation of fate in four major eighteenth-century novels, Defoe's Moll Flanders (1722), Richardson's Pamela (1740) and Clarissa Harlowe (1747-8), and Sterne's Tristram Shandy (1757-67), as experienced in the context of seventeeth-and eighteenth-century representations and discussions of the midwife, the witch, the "cunning woman", the bawd, and the traditional figure of fate as spinner and sewer of men and women."-Preface.; AMS Studies in the Eighteenth Century; Ex-Library; Vol. 10; 326 pages.
