First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Romantic Writings is an ideal introduction to a wide range of poetry and prose from the period between about 1780 and 1830. The reader is guided through canonical works by Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Keats and Shelley, and through lesser-known texts by women writers such as Mary Robinson, Letitia Elizabeth Landon and Felicia Hemans. The book introduces current debates about such issues as the Romantic artist, women writers and readers, and colonialism and the exotic. Romantic Writings has been designed for readers beginning undergraduate study in literature and is written in a lively and accessible style. Each chapter includes practical exercises in analysing significant passages of text and criticism, followed by detailed discussion. Also included are key critical texts by Stuart Curran, Raymond Schwab, Sigmund Freud and Rene Wellek.”
