Fri 11 May

Rachel Hewitt
SHOW INFORMATION

RACHEL HEWITT – on the years that forged the modern mind.

Presented in association with Arts and Humanities Research Council

In the late eighteenth century, Britain underwent what was then called ‘the most important of all revolutions…a revolution in sentiments’.

British radicals concocted new political worlds to enshrine healthier human emotions and relationships.

But by the end of the century, feverish optimism had given way to bleak disappointment and changed the way we think about human need and longing.

A Revolution of Feeling by prize-winning author Rachel Hewitt is a vivid and absorbing account of the beginning of an emotional landscape preoccupied by guilt, sin, failure, resignation, repression and the origins of our contemporary approach to feeling and desire.
