Laws, Facts and Fictions in the Late 18th and Early 19th Centuries

A study of laws, and of certain related matters, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The chronological limits will be from Burke to Dickens; concern with "laws" is limited to certain questions in English literature in those years. Questions of the laws perceived as governing the human world will be studied, as well as questions of the related facts and fictions which make the human world, and of the medium or atmosphere which shapes those laws, facts and fictions.
