Poetic form and British romanticism by Stuart Curran( Book )

31 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and German and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Across Europe, and particularly in Great Britain, the Romantic age coincided with a large-scale revival of lost literatures and the first attempts to create a coherent history of Western literature. Calling into question that history, Stuart Curran demonstrates that the Romantic poets, far from being indifferent or hostile to popular forms of literature were actually obsessed with them as repositories of literary conventions and conveyors of implicit ideological value. Whether in their proccupation with fixed forms, which resulted in the incomparable artistry of Romantic odes, or in their reth

Mary Shelley in her times by Betty T Bennett( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author of six novels, five volumes of biographical lives, two travel books, and numerous short stories, essays, and reviews, Mary Shelley is largely remembered as the author of Frankenstein, as the wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley, and as the daughter of William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft. This collection of essays, edited by Betty T. Bennett and Stuart Curran, offers a more complete and complex picture of Mary Shelley, emphasizing the full range and significance of her writings in terms of her own era and ours. Mary Shelley in Her Times brings fresh insight to the life and work of an often neglected or misunderstood writer who, the editors remind us, spent nearly three decades at the center of England's literary world during the country's profound transition between the Romantic and Victorian eras. The essays in this volume demonstrate the importance of Mary Shelley's neglected novels, including Matilda, Valperga, The Last Man, and Falkner. Other topics include Mary Shelley's work in various literary genres, her editing of her husband's poetry and prose, her politics, and her trajectory as a female writer. This volume advances Mary Shelley studies to a new level of discourse and raises important issues for English Romanticism and women's studies."--Publisher's description

Valperga, or, The life and adventures of Castruccio, Prince of Lucca by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Valperga (1823), the novel Mary Shelley wrote after Frankenstein, is based on the life of Castruccio Castracani, the fourteenth-century Prince of Lucca. A brilliant soldier and cruel tyrant, he successfully commanded Ghibelline forces in Tuscany against the Guelphs, threatening Florence, their stronghold. Woven into the story of this historical conflict are the tragic destinies of two heroines: Euthanasia, Countess of Valperga, and Beatrice. Described by the author's father, William Godwin, as 'the jewel of the book', Beatrice is a heretic with whom Castruccio falls in love, while Euthanasia finds herself increasingly torn between loyalty to her Guelph roots and her passion for Castruccio."--Jacket

The poems of Charlotte Smith. Women Writers in English, 1350-1850( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlotte Smith (1749-1806) was the author of ten novels, a play, and a host of innovative educational books for children, as well as several volumes of poetry that helped set priorities and determine the tastes of the culture of early Romanticism. Her Elegiac Sonnets sparked the sonnet revival in English Romanticism; The Emigrants initiated its passion for lengthy meditative introspection; and Beachy Head lent its poetic engagement with nature a uniquely telling immediacy. Smith was a woman, Wordsworth remarked a quarter century after her death, "to whom English verse is under greater obligations than are likely to be either acknowledged or remembered." True to his prediction, Smith's poetry has virtually dropped from sight and thus from cultural consciousness. This, the first edition of Smith's collected poems, will restore to all students of English poetry a distinctive, compelling voice. Likewise, the recovery of Smith to her rightful place among the Romantic poets must spur the reassessment of the place of women writers within that culture
