Product Description

Publishers Note :Novel Judgements is a book about nineteenth-century Anglo-American law-and-literature. But by redefining law as legal theory, Novel Judgements departs from socio-legal studies of law-and-literature, which are often dated in their focus on past lawyering and court processes. This text's `theoretical turn' renders the period's law-and-literature relevant to today's readers because the nineteenth-century novel, when read `jurisprudentially', abounds in representations of law's controlling concepts, many of which are still with us today. Rights, justice, morality, each are encoded novelistically in stock devices such as the country house, friendship, love, courtship and marriage. In so rendering the public (law) as private (domesticity), the nineteenth-century novel exposes, for legal and literary scholars alike, the ways in which law comes to mediate all relationships -- individual and collective, personal and political -- during a period as much under the Rule of Law as the reign of Capital. So the novel passes judgement -- a novel judgement -- on the extent to which the nineteenth-century's idea of law is collusive with that era's Capital, thereby opening up the possibility of a new legal theoretical position: that of a critique of the law and a law of critique.
