Intertextual War focuses on representations of Edmund Burke and Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790) by Burke's principal eighteenth-century respondents. Concentrating on the respondents' relevant works, the author reconstructs the intertextual war they were waging against Burke and the traditional eighteenth-century canon, illustrating how a variety of eighteenth-century texts and contexts ground their rebellious reading of the both Burke and the Revolution as they deconstruct the former and rewrite the latter.

Strana 48 - ... which is more durable, because more natural ; and which, according to the different views in which we survey her, is capable either of exalting beyond measure, or diminishing the lustre of her character. This prejudice is founded on the consideration of her sex. When we contemplate her as a woman, we are apt to be struck with the highest admiration of her qualities...
Strana 224 - So far as my endeavors could go, they have all been directed to conciliate the affections, unite the interests, and draw and keep the mind of the country together; and the better to assist in this foundation work of the revolution, I have avoided all places of profit or office, either in the state I live in, or in the United States; kept myself at a distance from all parties and party...
Strana 74 - Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation.' I have lived to see a diffusion of knowledge which has undermined superstition and error ; I have lived to see the rights of men better understood than ever, and nations panting for liberty which seemed to have lost the idea of it...
Strana 113 - The rights of men are in a sort of middle, incapable of definition, but not impossible to be discerned. The rights of men in governments are their advantages ; and these are often in balances between differences of good ; in compromises sometimes between good and evil, and sometimes, between evil and evil. Political reason is a computing principle; adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing, morally and not metaphysically or mathematically, true moral denominations.
Strana 29 - This is a way of proceeding quite contrary to metaphor and allusion, wherein for the most part lies that entertainment and pleasantry of wit which strikes so lively on the fancy, and therefore...
Strana 100 - I cannot consider Mr Burke's book in scarcely any other light than a dramatic performance; and he must, I think, have considered it in the same light himself, by the poetical liberties he has taken of omitting some facts, distorting others, and making the whole machinery bend to produce a stage effect.
Strana 43 - Women are very sensible of this ; for which reason they learn to lisp, to totter in their walk, to counterfeit weakness, and even sickness.
Strana 34 - All the decent drapery of life is to be rudely torn off. All the superadded ideas, furnished from the wardrobe of a moral imagination, which the heart owns and the understanding ratifies as necessary to cover the defects of our naked, shivering nature and to raise it to dignity in our own estimation, are to be exploded as a ridiculous, absurd, and antiquated fashion.
