Papers for this panel will analyze the interconnections between the literary, visual, material, and social forms of ruin that permeate the literature and culture of the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. How are fictional or stylistic ruins related to moral discourses or to the cycle of market capitalism? How are poetic and narrative forms like the fragment and the anecdote related to thematic content about a loss of virtue, money, or power? How does the visual and material culture of ruins interact with print culture?
