The Politics of Sensibility is successful within its scope.

The Politics of Sensibility is successful within its scope. Ellis provides a practical book which will be useful to anyone working on the politics of the early novel. Markman Ellis contests the enduring view that the sentimental novel is concerned only with displays of refined feeling. He analyses such fiction's engagement in public controversies of the late eighteenth century: emerging anti-slavery opinion, discourse on the morality of commerce, and the movement to reform prostitution.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996. ISBN: 0 521 55221 4 (hardback). An article from journal Romanticism on the Net (Number 11, August 1998), on Érudit. After an introductory chapter in which he intelligently summarises the historical phenomenon of sensibility, Ellis turns his attention to the first of the detailed contextualisations that form the core of the book. He examines the role played by sentimental texts in the campaign for the abolition-or at least reform-of slavery. He focuses on the work of Sterne, and relates Sterne's references to slavery to the contemporary African writer Ignatius Sancho.

The sentimental novel has long been noted for its liberal and humanitarian interests. In The Politics of Sensibility Markman Ellis argues that sentimental fiction also consciously participated in specific political controversies of the late eighteenth century, including emerging arguments about the ethics of slavery, the morality of commerce, and the movement to reform prostitutes. He shows that sentimental fiction was a public as well as a private genre, and that the very form of the novel was recognized as a political tool of cultural significance.
