You Can Make This Stuff Up: Intersection Between Fiction and News in the Eighteenth Century

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the eighteenth century, it was difficult to tell prose fiction from non-fiction. Both made claims to truthfulness, and often both, especially the newspapers, included fabrication. Using Jürgen Habermas’ theory of communicative acts as a guide, deep textual analysis of eighteenth century British newspapers shows the beginnings of modern journalistic standards by the end of the century: accuracy, honest, and credibility.
