The Romantic period coincided with revolutionary transformations of traditional political and human rights discourses, as well as witnessing rapid advances in technology and a primitivist return to nature. As a broad global movement, Romanticism strongly impacted on the literature and arts of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in ways that are still being debated and negotiated today.

Examining the poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama, and the arts of the period, this book considers:

  • Important propositions and landmark ideas in the Romantic period;
  • Key debates and critical approaches to Romantic studies;
  • New and revisionary approaches to Romantic literature and art;
  • The ways in which Romantic writing interacts with broader trends in history, politics, and aesthetics;
  • European and Global Romanticism;
  • The legacies of Romanticism in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Containing useful, reader-friendly features such as explanatory case studies, chapter summaries, and suggestions for further reading, this clear and engaging book is an invaluable resource for anyone who intends to study and research the complexity and diversity of the Romantic period, as well as the historical conditions which produced it.
