  • Wordsworth and Coleridgeby John Blades

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 23.75

    In this lively and stimulating study, detailed analysis of the poems is closely grounded in the literary and historical contexts in which Lyrical Ballads was first conceived, realized and subsequently expanded into two volumes. Documenting the revisions of the early edition, John Blades carefully reassesses the poems in the light of Wordsworth's... more...

  • Pope to Burney, 1714-1779by Moyra Haslett

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 35.15

    This book defines literature of the Eighteenth century as a literature written and received as public conversation. Moyra Haslett discusses and challenges conventional ways of reading the period, particularly in relation to ideas of the public sphere. Key texts (including The Dunciad , Gulliver's Travels and Pamela ) are read through the context... more...

  • Contributors to the Quarterly Reviewby Jonathan Cutmore

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    The "Quarterly Review" presents a rare opportunity to Romantic scholars to test the truth of Marilyn Butler's claim that the early nineteenth-century periodical is the matrix for democratization of public writing and reading. This is the second title in this series to look at its influence. more...

  • Conservatism and the Quarterly Reviewby Jonathan Cutmore

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    In its time, the Quarterly Review was thought to closely reflect government policy, however, the essays in this volume reveal that it was inconsistent in its support of government positions and reflected disagreement over a broad range of religious, economic and political issues. more...

  • Wilkie Collins's American Tour, 1873-4by Susan R Hanes

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    In the autumn of 1873, Wilkie Collins followed the example of fellow literary celebrities Dickens and Thackeray, and began a six-month reading tour of America. This book places this tour within the American lyceum movement of the later nineteenth century. more...

  • The New Man, Masculinity and Marriage in the Victorian Novelby Tara MacDonald

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.14

    By tracing the rise of the New Man alongside novelistic changes in the representations of marriage, MacDonald shows how this figure encouraged Victorian writers to reassess masculine behaviour and to re-imagine the marriage plot in light of wider social changes. She finds examples in novels by Dickens, Anne Brontë, George Eliot and George Gissing. more...

  • William Godwin and the Theatreby David O'Shaughnessy

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    William Godwin is one of the most important figures of the Romantic period. He wrote four plays at the end of the 18th/beginning of the 19th centuries. This book has two main objectives: to provide the first comprehensive discussion of these four plays, and to consider the notion of theatricality in relation to Godwin’s political project. more...

  • Wordsworth's Poetic Collections, Supplementary Writing and Parodic Receptionby Brian R Bates

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    Wordsworth’s process of revision, his organization of poetic volumes and his supplementary writings are often seen as distinct from his poetic composition. Bates asserts that an analysis of these supplementary writings and paratexts are necessary to a full understanding of Wordsworth’s poetry. more...

  • Jane Austen's Civilized Womenby Enit Karafili Steiner

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    Jane Austen’s six complete novels and her juvenilia are examined in the context of civil society and gender. Steiner’s study uses a variety of contexts to appraise Austen’s work: Scottish Enlightenment theories of societal development, early-Romantic discourses on gender roles, modern sociological theories on the civilizing process. more...

  • Romantic Marginalityby Alex Watson

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.27

    This is the first critical study of Romantic-era annotation or marginalia – footnotes, endnotes, glossaries – which formed a vital site of literary interaction. more...
