'… richly rewarding … Couched in lucid prose that eschews academese without detracting from the scholasticism of Cox's undertaking, Romanticism in the Shadow of War wholly encompasses the richness of the era and its literary culture.' Neil Fitzgerald, The Times Literary Supplement
'… a charming, a fascinating, and a groundbreaking read.' Cian Duffy, Notes and Queries
'Jeffrey Cox has written an elegant and persuasive book about literary genres considered as cultural maneuvers on the English home front during the course of the Napoleonic Wars strictly defined, 1800–15.' Kenneth R. Johnston, The BARS Review
Romanticism in the Shadow of War radically reconsiders the conventional understanding of Byron, the Shelleys, and Keats, as well as lesser-known writers, by showing how their work developed not only from Romantic writers of the 1790s, but also in response to the cultural innovations of the Napoleonic War years.See all Product description
