About the Author

KEVIN L. COPE is the Distinguished Professor of English and comparative literature and Robert and Rita Wetta Adams Professor of English Literature at Louisiana State University, and author of three monographs, several edited collections, and hundreds of scholarly articles and reviews on enlightenment authors, issues, themes, and topics. He has also had a distinguished career as president of the LSU Faculty Senate.


"For more than two decades, 1650-1850 has offered its readers an inspiring example of what a scholarly annual concentrating on interdisciplinary and international topics can be. The work of seasoned scholars appears alongside that of 'mid-career' scholars and newly-minted PhDs, creating a heady variety of approaches and subject matter in every volume. The articles, the reviews, the 'special features, ' and even the occasional 'Editor's Choice' on underappreciated books always advance knowledge in large and small ways. Equally important, each contribution is typically written with verve and allusive pluckiness. There has never been anything doctrinaire about 1650-1850, other than an energy to display compelling new work to its best advantage. That Bucknell University Press has committed itself to this exciting annual is a cause for celebration."
--J.T. Scanlan "co-editor, The Age of Johnson, Providence College"
"A good read and an intellectually responsible read, a worthwhile component of our literary public sphere that deserves our wellwishes."--Michael McKeon "Rutgers University"
"Scholarly communities, especially those joined in eighteenth-century studies, can raise a shout (or glass) over the prospect of the annual 1650-1850's future publication by Bucknell University Press. This will provide us with regular publication and broader distribution of the journal Kevin Cope has so impressively edited for over 20 years. With contributions from around the world, 1650-1850 has long been providing essays focused on fields as diverse as art and philosophy and others truly inter-disciplinary. It has carried many special issues on topics like 'Death and Dying in the Early Modern Era.' It has also distinguished itself by including lengthy essays and reviews. While 1650-1850 has always been an important annual for seventeenth-, eighteenth-, and nineteenth-century studies, its temporal focus is all the more valuable now that so much exciting research is being produced."--James E. May "editor, 18th-Century Intelligencer, Pennsylvania State University, Dubois"
