Product Description

From the Back Cover

Romanticism: A Critical Reader is designed both to accompany and supplement Blackwell′s Romanticism: An Anthology. It deals for the most part with works included in that volume while affording coverage to key elements, including fiction, beyond the anthologist′s scope to include. Most of the movements and schools of thought active during the last fifteen years are represented, including feminism, new historicism, genre theory, psychoanalysis, and deconstructionism. The reader provides thus a progress report, useful to anyone interested in the application of theoretical ideas to literary texts, giving a unique overview of Romantic studies since 1980.

Contributors: Marilyn Butler, James K. Chandler, Vincent Arthur De Luca, James A. W. Heffernan, Nelson Hilton, Margaret B. Homans, Alan Liu, Jerome J. McGann, Peter J. Manning, Anne K. Mellor, Tom Paulin, Balachandra Rajan, Tilottama Rajan, Edward Said, Karen Swann, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Leon Waldoff, Kathleen M. Wheeler.

Format: Paperback
I recently studied Romanticism in a collegiate class using this text as the main "bible" of Romanticism, if you will. I thumbed through it shortly after I purchased it and found most of the authors I thought of as Romantics and some that I had no idea were considered part of the era. The content is logically organized with helpful commentary by the contributors who are expert in the field. Of course, with Romanticism, individual ideas were always most important, so each contributor may have something to say that differs from another, but all opinions are welcome.
My particular avenue of interest is John Keats and, though an anthology's companion and an anthology itself, this text gave me enough information to whet my appetite for more and to consider enrolling in graduate study in Keats's poetry and prose.
I would recommend this to all teachers of Romanticism who want to supplement their students' learning process and all those who are Romantics at heart and want an overview of the era. Be advised, however, that it is mostly the poetry and some excerpts of prose and does not include any of the novels of the era, nor does it touch much on the other arts except in a broad historical sense.
