  • Wordsworth and Coleridgeby John Blades

    Macmillan Education UK 2017; US$ 23.26

    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$ 34.89

Key texts (including The Dunciad , Gulliver's Travels and Pamela ) are read through the context... more...

  • Conservatism and the Quarterly Reviewby Jonathan Cutmore

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

    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...

  • Contributors to the Quarterly Reviewby Jonathan Cutmore

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

    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...

  • Romantic Marginalityby Alex Watson

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

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

  • Art and Womanhood in Fin-de-Siecle Writingby Catherine Delyfer

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

    Lucas Malet is one of a number of forgotten female writers whose work bridges the gap between George Eliot and Virginia Woolf. Malet’s writing was intrinsically linked to her passion for art. This is the first book-length study of Malet’s novels. more...

  • Reading Robert Burnsby Carol McGuirk

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.92

    Robert Burns is Scotland’s greatest cultural icon. Yet, despite his continued popularity, critical work has been compromised by the myths that have built up around him. McGuirk focuses on Burns’s poems and songs, analysing his use of both vernacular Scots and literary English to provide a unique reading of his work. more...

  • Prostitution and Eighteenth-Century Cultureby Ann Lewis; Markman Ellis

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

    The eighteenth century saw profound changes in the way prostitution was represented in literary and visual culture. This collection of essays focuses on the variety of ways that the sex trade was represented in popular culture of the time, across different art forms and highlighting contradictory interpretations. more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 51.00

    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$ 54.92

    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...
