Sinopsis: Henry St John, First Viscount Bolingbroke (1678-1751) enjoyed varied political and literary careers. He was the friend and correspondent of leading figures across the political and religious spectrum; Hanoverian and Jacobite, Whig and Tory, Protestant and Catholic, Episcopalian and Presbyterian are all represented in his correspondence. Bolingbroke's letters therefore constitute one of the most fascinating and articulate sources of eighteenth-century European politics and culture available to modern scholars. In an age distinguished for the excellence of its letter-writing, Bolingbroke was regarded by his contemporaries as a model prose stylist. His letters are extraordinarily wide-ranging in scope and contain discussions on contemporary politics, philosophy, ancient culture, literary criticism, European history, empire, foreign policy, the textual history of the Bible, deism, theatre, travel and education. His letters to his half-sister, Henrietta Knight, shed light on his personal relationships, whilst his letters to the First Duke of Marlborough contain information on diplomacy and military movements during the War of the Spanish Succession, when Britain first emerged as a leading European and colonial power. This five-volume critical edition draws together Bolingbroke's unpublished letters, now scattered in public and private archives around the world. It will appeal to scholars of eighteenth-century history, philosophy and literature.
