490 1  Palgrave studies in nineteenth-century writing and culture
520    This volume examines the anxieties that caused many 
       nineteenth-century writers to insist on literature as a 
       laboured and labouring enterprise. Following Isaac 
       D'Israeli's gloss on Jean de La Bruyere, it asks, in 
       particular, whether writing should be 'called working'. 
       Whereas previous studies have focused on national 
       literatures in isolation, this volume demonstrates the two
       -way traffic between British and French conceptions of 
       literary labour. It questions assumed areas of affinity 
       and difference, beginning with the labour politics of the 
       early nineteenth century and their common root in the 
       French Revolution. It also scrutinises the received view 
       of France as a source of a 'leisure ethic', and of British
       writers as either rejecting or self-consciously mimicking 
       French models. Individual essays consider examples of how 
       different writers approached their work, while also 
       evoking a broader notion of 'work ethics', understood as a
       humane practice, whereby values, benefits, and 
       responsibilities, are weighed up
