The Spectator was a daily publication founded by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele in England, lasting from to Each "paper", or "number", was approximately 2, words long, and the original run consisted of numbers, beginning on 1 March The paper was revived without the involvement of Steele in , appearing thrice weekly for six months, and these papers when collected formed the eighth volume.
Eustace Budgell , a cousin of Addison's, and the poet John Hughes also contributed to the publication. In Number 10, Mr. Spectator states that The Spectator will aim "to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality". The journal reached an audience of thousands of people every day, because "the Spectators was something that every middle-class household with aspirations to looking like its members took literature seriously would want to have.
Women specifically were also a target audience for The Spectator, because one of the aims of the periodical was to increase the number of women who were "of a more elevated life and conversation. Despite a modest daily circulation of approximately 3, copies, The Spectator was widely read; Joseph Addison estimated that each number was read by thousands of Londoners, about a tenth of the capital's population at the time.
Contemporary historians and literary scholars, meanwhile, do not consider this to be an unreasonable claim; most readers were not themselves subscribers but patrons of one of the subscribing coffeehouses. These readers came from many stations in society, but the paper catered principally to the interests of England's emerging middle class—merchants and traders large and small. The Spectator also had many readers in the American colonies. In particular, James Madison read the paper avidly as a teenager.
It is said to have had a big influence on his world view, lasting throughout his long life. The Spectator continued to be popular and widely read in the late 18th and 19th centuries.
It was sold in eight-volume editions. Its prose style, and its marriage of morality and advice with entertainment, were considered exemplary. The decline in its popularity has been discussed by Brian McCrea and C. In The Spectator, No. Although the periodical essay was published on 13 March , the story is based on Richard Ligon's publication in Ligon's publication, A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbadoes , reports on how the cruelties of the transatlantic slave trade contribute to slave-produced goods such as tobacco and sugarcane.
Spectator goes to speak with an older woman, Arietta, whom many people visit to discuss various topics. When Mr. Spectator enters the room, there is already another man present speaking with Arietta. They are discussing "constancy in love," and the man uses the tale of The Ephesian Matron to support his point. Arietta is insulted and angered by the man's hypocrisy and sexism.
She counters his tale with one of her own, the story of Inkle and Yarico. Thomas Inkle, a twenty-year-old man from London, sailed to the West Indies to increase his wealth through trade. While on an island, he encounters a group of Indians, who battle and kill many of his shipmates. After fleeing, Inkle hides in a cave where he discovers Yarico, an Indian maiden. They become enamored with one another's clothing and physical appearances, and Yarico for the next several months hides her lover from her people and provides him with food and fresh water.
Eventually, a ship passes, headed for Barbadoes, and Inkle and Yarico use this opportunity to leave the island. After reaching the English colony, Inkle sells Yarico to a merchant, even after she tells him that she is pregnant.
Arietta closes the tale stating that Inkle simply uses Yarico's declaration to argue for a higher price when selling her. Spectator is so moved by the legend that he takes his leave. Steele's text was so well known and influential that seven decades after his publication, George Colman modified the short story into a comic opera , showcasing three relationships between characters of varying social statuses to reach multiple audiences.
