This examine discusses early eighteenth-century good judgment in 4 vast complexes, as to its discursive features that are moral (which at the moment implies aesthetic as well), transgressive (as a corrective), political (in patriotic constructs of the nation), and repressive (of otherness). the choice of texts during this examine moves a stability among dominant literary tradition – rapid, Pope, Defoe, Fielding, Johnson – and the outer edge, reminiscent of pamphlets and journal essays, satiric poems and patriotic songs.
