Religious and Didactic Writings, Volume 2
Bringing together an impressive collection of his most important and influential instructional treatises, the Religious and Didactic Writings of Daniel Defoe will be an exciting addition to the Works of Daniel Defoe from the prestigious Pickering Masters series. Defoe's era saw much popular interest in the instructional handbook and behaviour manual. Forming a highly significant part of his own oeuvre, Defoe adopted this style of literature with great effect, allowing him to explore fully some of his more cherished - and sometimes salacious - subjects: religion, immorality, sexual intrigue, social order, education and the duties and responsibilities of a merchant. With his love of dilemma and paradox, exemplified in Conjugal Lewdness, his sharp observations on the blessings that education can bring - and the fatal consequences of its neglect - in Of Royall Education, the ten volumes making up Defoe's Religious and Didactic Writings are a feast for Defoe scholars and all academics of eighteenth-century history, religion and literature.
