dc.description.abstractDuring the 1790s, the senses became intensely politicised. This essay examines the links between the senses and the emotions in popular radical print culture through an analysis of the Moral and Political Magazine, the official publication of the London Corresponding Society, printed in monthly instalments for around twelve months from 1796. From surveillance to shouting, starvation to stench, sensory experiences and their attendant emotional conditions were central features of popular radical writing. Like many radical pamphlets, the Moral and Political Magazine attributed to the senses a wide range of political meanings, but its aim of combining cultural improvement with radical polemic meant that the periodical had a vexed attitude to the senses, making them prominent aspects of political argument while regarding them as impediments to enlightened political activity.
