Abstract
The present dissertation proposes to examine the paratextual, translational, and print-cultural mediation of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Discours qui a remporté le prix à l’Académie de Dijon (1751) in Britain, from the publication in Paris and first English translation of the essay in 1751 until 1785, the date of issuance of Thomas Martyn’s Letters on the Elements of Botany. Centrally informed by Jerome J. McGann’s theory of radiant textuality and study of the textual condition, the dissertation adopts a combinatory methodological-theoretical framework drawing on Genettian theories of paratextuality, and recent approaches adopted in studies of translation, reception, book history, and print culture. The dissertation is divided into four chapters, each of which will examine a stage in the history of the mediation of Rousseau’s First Discourse in the second half of the eighteenth century.
