Lewis, Jan:
The Pursuit of Happiness: Family and Values in Jefferson's Virginia - Livres de poche

ISBN: 9780521315081

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR], This is an unusual and challenging study of the 'inner world' of the Virginia gentry during Jefferson's lifetime. It argues that, in the years after the Revolution, the gentry turned away from public life into the privacy of their homes and families. A new, sentimental religion agreed that the world was filled with woe and advised detachment from it in preparation for a better one to come. Notions of success, likewise, offered little cheer, as men and women reluctantly accepted the individualistic proposition that their destinies were in their own hands. Neither religion nor success assured earthly happiness instead, Virginians sought their salvation in love. There, in the family and in feeling, men and women broke through the eighteenth-century's emotional restraint to pursue, but not always to find, the happiness they believed awaited them. Table of contents: List of plates Preface Acknowledgments 1. 'My peaceable scheme': the world of the pre-Revolutionary gentry 2. 'The real use of religion': religion 3. 'Weep for yourselves': death 4. 'Little ambitions': success 5. 'Earthly connexions': love 6. 'The best feelings of our nature': conclusion List of abbreviations used in notes Notes Bibliographical essay A note on the sources Selected bibliography Index. 312 pages Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
