Rate this:
This study brings a literary perspective to bear upon Edmund Burke's political writings. De Bruyn recontextualizes Burke's writings by exploring what the eighteenth century understood by the term literature' and by demonstrating how thoroughly he relies on the dominant literary discourses of his time, especially the satire and georgic/didactic modes, in composing his speeches and polemics.
