Summary:The British Romantic era was a vibrant and exciting time in the history of the novel. Yet, aside from a few iconic books -Pride and Prejudice, Frankenstein-it has been ignored or dismissed by later readers and critics. Bringing this rich but neglected body of works to the fore, Recognizing the Romantic Novel: New Histories of British Fiction, 1780-1830 challenges us to rethink our ideas of the novel as a genre, as well as our long-held assumptions about the literary movement of Romanticism. Ranging from pre-Revolution to post-Waterloo, this volume celebrates the experimental drive and revision.
