Vol. I: The Modern Moral Subject, 1697-1732

By Ronald Paulson

ISBN: 9780718828547

‘This is an astonishing book, and I don’t know when I last read anything on the 18th century from which I learned as much. It is a quite remarkably full chronicle of Hogarth’s life, based on the exhaustive information Paulson has exhumed from manuscript records, from newspapers, and from the writings of his contemporaries […]. Nothing so ambitious has been attempted for any other British artist of the period, and no one else would have the range of learning necessary to make the attempt.’

John Barrell, London Review of Books, Vol. 16, No. 7, 7 April
