Product Overview

This book considers the eighteenth-century practice of violent naval recruitment known as impressment in the light of literary representations of its impact on British society. The author examines scenes that feature press-gangs in novels, plays, ballads, and personal narratives and shows how impressment reveals the ways genre is related to ideology.
