Whither Miscellany Culture?

This concluding chapter explores the geographical scope and extent of the textual culture described in previous chapters. Revisiting a number of the individuals discussed earlier in the book (including Hill, Oxinden, and Owen of Henllys), it shows that miscellany culture flourished in the provinces and regions as well as in the more familiar sites of literary and scholarly production. In fact, it is shown that it emerged in some of its most striking and innovative ways in places that were a considerable distance geographically (as well as often intellectually) from more typical literary locations such as Oxford, Cambridge, and the Inns of Court in London. In parallel, the chapter also shows that this kind of textual culture had an unexpected longevity, extending well into the eighteenth century, as examples including John Locke and Thomas Gray show.

Keywords:   miscellany, scribal culture, literary production, commonplace book, geography, provinces, regions, John Locke, Thomas Gray
