Analytical paper on Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s The Reveries of the Solitary Walker
This is an open topic analytical paper on Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s The Reveries of the Solitary Walker, so you can choose whatever aspect of the book and define a question that you want to investigate.

chronology of the translation of Rousseau’s writings into English.

chart the dates of original publication,2 and in the right-hand column
the dates of first appearance in translated form. Asterisks signify
that the works so marked were issued as parts of collected editions
or in periodicals.

my article, “The Reaction in Eighteenth-Century England to Rousseau’s two
Discours” (P.M.L.A., xlviii , 471-88). This article also cites other studies
of various phases of the reception which the English accorded Rousseau in the
