      John Brewer's enthralling book explains how this happened and recreates the world in which the great works of English eighteenth-century art were made. Its purpose is to show how literature, painting, music and the theatre were communicated to a public increasingly avid for them.5/5(1). The Pleasures of the Imagination examines the birth and development of English "high culture" in the eighteenth century. It charts the growth of a literary and artistic world fostered by publishers, theatrical and musical impresarios, picture dealers and auctioneers, and presented to th public in coffee-houses, concert halls, libraries, theatres and pleasure gardens/5(5).

      This work explores English culture and its origins. It questions how it was that at the end of the 17th century, there was almost no native English tradition in painting, the theatre, music or publishing, yet by the end of the 18th century, England had one of Europe's richest cultures/5(5).   Written by a leading authority on French theatre and culture in the eighteenth century, this book traces the theatrical career of Voltaire from his college days through his final works. The most influential dramatist of the period, he successfully wrote in a number of genres, including tragedy, comedy, opera, comic opera, and court : Marvin A. Carlson.

      English eighteenth-century music is comparatively neglected as an academic topic despite its increasing popularity with listeners, both on record and in the concert hall. Yet England in the eighteenth century was the scene of the liveliest and most various musical activity. The essays in this book, by leading English and American scholars, are devoted to the social and intellectual . A revival of 18th Century English music in the s and s, led by the likes of Gerald Finzi () and Constant Lambert (), went a long way to rekindle interest in this forgotten era – but still, today, many of these composers’ works remain relatively unknown.
