Crossing disciplinary boundaries between eighteenth-century studies and Irish studies, this book explores the geographies and politics of Oliver Goldsmith’s complex and productive negotiation of the London literary marketplace during the enlightenment. This study reveals a body of work that is compellingly marked by tensions and transits between Irishness and Englishness, between poetic and professional imperatives, between cultural and scientific spheres.
