Poetic form and British romanticism by Stuart Curran( Book )

Curran here confronts the popular stereotype that the Romantics either accepted or rejected previously established literary genres. He proposes rather that they adapted traditional poetic forms to suit their own democratic, secular, and sceptical ethos. This artistic merger of traditional genre with the tenets of Romanticism was a fruitful one, not only resulting in the revival of the ode and the sonnet, but also leading to the imaginative rethinking of major forms like the pastoral, the epic, and the romance which gave the movement its name

Mary Shelley in her times by Betty T Bennett( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 737 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

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 352 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
