The Illustration of Oliver Goldsmith’s Literary Works (1766-1845): Adopting a media-focussed methodological approach, this interdisciplinary project aims to offer a diachronic study of the illustration of Oliver Goldsmith’s literary works. Examining a wide variety of visual media, ranging from book illustration to paintings and furniture prints, the project will uncover the ways in which Goldsmith’s literary texts were repeatedly reinscribed and reinterpreted throughout the late eighteenth and first half of the nineteenth century. Drawing additionally on other paratextual responses in the cultural space, such as biographies, advertisements, and reviews, the project will trace the various stages of the cultural transmission and transformation of Goldsmith’s texts and will demonstrate that the visual responses played an integral part in the establishment and reinforcement of their economic and symbolic capital.
