in Books during the Long Eighteenth Century
It was during these years that the huge British Empire, ranging from Gibraltar to India and Canada was built up. But though it was the century of wars,-they were completely different from what we understand by "war" in the 20th- 21st centuries: these were usually fought by small professional armies, and the daily lives of most people were affected hardly at all. Even when Britain and France were at war, trade and cultural exchanges continued between the two countries. The second period of the Enlightenment was the most mature period: the forties and the fifties of the 18th century. It saw the development of the realistic social novel represented by Richardson, Fielding and Smollett. The third period refers to the last decades of the century. It is marked by the appearance of the new trend: Sentimentalism. The representatives of this trend were Goldsmith and Sterne.
