This volume considers the history and usage of the term romanticism, and the changing views and debates which surround it. The history of the term is traced through 18th to 20th-century readings, and the text incorporates contemporary debates such as feminism, post-structuralism and new historicism. The traditional canon - Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Keats - is placed in the wider context of their contemporary political and philosophical thinkers. A range of writers, both canonical and non-canonical, are included in his survey, including: Edmund Blake; Thomas Paine; Mary Wollstonecraft; Jane Austen; Charlotte Smith; and Anna Laetitia Barbauld. This volume takes a wide-ranging view of the subject and is intended to be of use to students new to the subject.
