First seminar meeting

I've tweaked the syllabus quite a bit since the last time I taught it, adding a few new books and subtracting various other stuff. These are the books on order at Book Culture (other primary texts include Virgil's Georgics as translated by Dryden and Johnson's prefatory materials for the Dictionary). It's a graduate seminar, but I have admitted a few undergraduates to keep things lively....

Defoe, Robinson Crusoe (Norton)
Swift, Gulliver's Travels (Oxford World's Classics)
Rousseau, Discourse on the Origin of Inequality (Oxford World’s Classics)
Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia (Penguin)
Smollett, The Expedition of Humphry Clinker (Oxford World's Classics)
Johnson and Boswell, A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland and The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides (Penguin)
Rousseau, Emile (Basic Books)
Wollstonecraft, Vindications (Broadview)
Burney, Camilla (Oxford World’s Classics)
Austen, Emma (Oxford World's Classics)
