  • Wordsworth and the Passions of Critical Poeticsby Stuart Allen

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 100.00

    This scholarly study presents a new political Wordsworth: an artist interested in 'autonomous' poetry's redistribution of affect.

    William Shakespeare lived in violent times; his death passed without comment. By the time he was adopted as the national poet of England the details of his life had been concealed.

  • Robert Southeyby Stuart Andrews

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    In  Robert Southey , Andrews   argues that Robert Southey's denunciation of global Catholicism is essential to understanding his life, works, and times.
