Including classic essays and lively debates, British Romanticism shows that Romantic literature is an interesting and exciting topic to read and study. Combining key pieces from the last 25 years alongside newly written essays offering fresh takes on the area, this book covers the essential topics but with a contemporary and dynamic twist. Each section includes a detailed introduction and covers issues which are as relevant to current readers as to those in the romantic period, such as media, science, religion, politics, ethics, gender, sexuality, race, nationalism and ethics. The book contains additional features such as suggestions for further reading and an introduction to the history of interpreting Romantic Literature. Designed to appeal to both undergraduate and postgraduate readers, this distinctive volume reflects the vibrant debates across Romantic Studies from the 1990s to the present.
