Tobias Smollett After 300 Years offers a collection of essays on one of the great literary figures of the eighteenth century: the Scottish writer, Tobias Smollett (1721–1771). Drawing together the work of an international group of scholars, with a variety of critical approaches, the book examines aspects of Smollett’s life, writing and reputation on the occasion of the three-hundredth anniversary of his birth.

Join the contributors to the book as they take this opportunity to reflect on Smollett’s life, writing and reputation.

Richard J. Jones is Senior Lecturer in Literature at The Open University in the UK. He is the author of Tobias Smollett in the Enlightenment (2011), along with articles on Smollett’s historical and critical writing.
