About this product
- DescriptionLike Don Quixote, Sterne's Tristram Shandy, and Fielding's Tom Jones, Modern Chivalry is a tale of adventuring, episodic and exciting. Despite the author's European inspirations, it is a distinctively American book, t just because of its homespun, native characters and slapstick humor, but also because it is a narrative of journeying and questing. As it follows Captain Farrago and his sidekick on their travels, the book's premise becomes clear-that democracy as practiced in America is valuable and worthy, but that it is subject to malfunctions when tinkered with by unfit men.
- Author BiographyHugh Henry Brackenridge (1748-1816) was a self made man, a very model of the versitile early American-lawyer, politician, editor, teacher, essayist, preacher, and novelist. Modern Chivalry is his best known work.
