Incarnations of fatal women, or femmes fatales, recur throughout the works of women writers in the Romantic period. Adriana Craciun demonstrates how portrayals of femmes fatales played an important role in the development of Romantic women’s poetic identities and affected their exploration of issues surrounding the body, sexuality and politics. Craciun covers a wide range of writers and genres from the 1790s through the 1830s and discusses the work of such well-known figures as Mary Wollstonecraft, as well as lesser-known writers like Anne Bannerman. This examination of women writersR

In this study, Mark Parker argues that magazines such as the London Magazine and Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine offered an innovative and collaborative space for writers and their work--indeed, magazines became one of the preeminent literary forms of the 1820s and 1830s. Examining the dynamic relationship between literature and culture that evolved within this context, Literary Magazines and British Romanticism claims that writing in such a setting enters into a variety of alliances with other contributions and with ongoing institutional concerns that give subtle inflection to its meanin

This collection of essays represents twenty-five years of work by a leading critic of Romanticism in general and Byron in particular. It demonstrates McGann’s evolution as a scholar, editor, critic, theorist, and historian, and his engagement with the main schools of literary criticism since the advent of structuralism in the 1960s. Many of these essays have previously been available only in specialist scholarly journals. Now for the first time McGann’s important and influential work on Byron can be appreciated by new generations of students and scholars.

Judith Plotz explores the normative role that childhood played in Romantic literature. The Romantics claimed the discovery of childhood and privileged the child as a model human being essentially connected to nature. To write about childhood, to reconstitute the self as a child, to live ones adult life as if one actually were a child became for many writers a lifelong vocation as well as a refuge. Romanticism and the Vocation of Childhood describes the obsessive romantic cherishing of childhood above adulthood. Chapters on Wordsworth, Lamb, DeQuincey, and the Lile Hartley Coleridge anato
