A Dramatic Entertainment seize upon Gulliver’s prevarication regarding his relationship with Lady Flimnap as evidence of some sort of illicit liaison between the two of them, the very fact that they contradict one another suggests that the tale of Gulliver’s stay in Lilliput cannot be gotten “right” in the way that most contemporaries presumed that, say, the last years of Queen Anne could be deﬁnitively narrated. Court and Country might not agree on how to tell the latter, but both would insist that it could be pinned down in a way that the oﬀ-page lives of Gulliver and Lady Flimnap could not be.
This holds true even for those expansions which purport to set the record straight— within which category we could put Swift’s own “Letter from Capt. Gulliver to his Cousin Sympson,” which complains about Gulliveriana “not agreed among themselves,” even as it purports to correct the ways in which “your Printer hath been so careless as to confound the Times, and mistake the Dates of my several Voyages and Returns; neither assigning the true Year, or the true Month, or the Day of the Month” (–).
This may be good political theory, but it makes for rather dubious historiography. What the normal exceptionality of imaginative expansion can help us to see is that the concept of the public in the eighteenth century was far broader than Habermas and some of his devotees have allowed and was not necessarily wedded to any of the things which they see as deﬁning. ”53 The principal reason why readers like Carey or Kenrick cannot be described as rational-critical (in addition to the manifest playfulness of their contributions) is that the collective project in which they are engaged does not aspire to consensus and so need not ever end.
