The Two Romanticisms, and Other Essays
Sydney University Press
The Romantic period is the most appealing but also the most confusing period of English literature for the student. Crucially, this book distinguishes between ‘the Romantic’ as modern critics use the term and ‘the romantic’ as it was used during the period itself.
The Two Romanticisms, and Other Essays is a collection of critical essays on Romanticism and select Romantic texts, designed to help teachers and students to make sense of the period as a whole and of the poems and novels that appear most frequently on school and university curricula. Each chapter offers a self-contained reading of a different canonical work while engaging with broader themes.
Through close readings of Jane Austen, Lord Byron, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Keats, Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley and William Wordsworth, Professor Christie explores the complexities of the Romantic period and offers fresh insights into pivotal Romantic texts.
