A Concise Companion to the Romantic Age

A Concise Companion to the Romantic Age explores the diverse issues and debates of the Romantic era, treating it both aesthetically and as a transformational historical epoch that ushered in Britain's modern industrialized society.

In a series of original, multi-disciplinary essays from scholarly experts, the text explores the full range of the Romantic period's literary, visual, and non-fictional genres — from poetry, drama, and the novel, to periodical writing, literary criticism, painting and panoramas. These richly-varied, innovative contributions provide fresh new critical insights into the era's religious controversy and politics, natural history and the “second scientific revolution”, empire and nationalism, the relationship between Romanticism to modernist aesthetics, and more. Compelling and scholarly, A Concise Companion to the Romantic Age enhances our understanding of the Romantics' imaginative and emotional responses to the conflicting forces of change that swept through Britain during this brief but crucially important literary and cultural era.
