George III, who reigned from 1760 to 1820, is remembered today for his loss both of the American Colonies and his own sanity. Over the last decades historians have looked again at his life and reign and what has emerged is a more sympathetic portrait. George III was far from being the intellectual mediocrity of legend. He was an active supporter of the latest advances in science. A voracious buyer of books, his collection was in due course to double the size of the national library. And when he died there was a national outpouring of grief that has rarely been equalled until modern times. This study, while giving an account of the King's personal and political life, will seek to place it in its social, constitutional and international context so that the reader can reach their own verdict on George III.

Emergence Of Irish Gothic Fiction

Provides a new account of the emergence of Irish gothic fiction in mid-eighteenth century This book provides a robustly theorised and thoroughly historicised account of the 'beginnings' of Irish gothic fiction, maps the theoretical terrain covered by other critics, and puts forward a new history of the emergence of the genre in Ireland. The main argument the book makes is that the Irish gothic should be read in the context of the split in Irish Anglican public opinion that opened in the 1750s, and seen as a fictional instrument of liberal Anglican opinion in a changing political landscape. By providing a fully historicized account of the beginnings of the genre in Ireland, the book also addresses the theoretical controversies that have bedevilled discussion of the Irish gothic in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. The book gives ample space to the critical debate, and rigorously defends a reading of the Irish gothic as an Anglican, Patriot tradition. This reading demonstrates the connections between little-known Irish gothic fictions of the mid-eighteenth century (The Adventures of Miss Sophia Berkley and Longsword), and the Irish gothic tradition more generally, and also the gothic as a genre of global significance.
