'It would be difficult, to my mind, to exaggerate the importance of this argument and the book it concludes. By tracing the history of georgic under-presence in eighteenth-century poetry, Georgic Modernity and British Romanticism resituates history within literature and finally builds a compelling case for the re-legitimation of Romantic temporality. Kevis Goodman outlines here a genuine history that can live in poetry, and she does so without either denying the value of ideological critique or compromising on the painfulness of historical experience. This work delivers an important qualification to historicism, one that should unsettle some of the assumptions that guide contemporary criticism.' Wordsworth Circle
'Highly recommended.' Choice
Kevis Goodman traces connections between Georgic verse and developments in other spheres from the late seventeenth to the early nineteenth centuries. She opens up the subject of Georgic to larger areas of literary and cultural study including the history of the feelings, print culture, and early scientific technology.See all Product Description
