520    The project of this book is to question and rewrite 
       assumptions about the nature of the Augustan era through 
       an exploration of Jacobite ideology. Taking as its 
       starting point the fundamental ambivalence of the Augustan
       concept the author studies canonical and non-canonical 
       literature and uncovers a new 'four nations' literary 
       history of the period defined in terms of struggle for 
       control of the language of authority between Jacobite and 
       Hanoverian writers. This struggle is seen to have 
       crystallized Irish and Scottish opposition to the British 
       state. The Jacobite cause generated powerful popular 
       literature and the sources explored include ballads, 
       broadsides and writing in Scots, Irish, Welsh and Gaelic. 
       The author concludes that the literary history we inherit 
       is built on the political outcome of the Revolution of 
       1688.
