The romantic ideology : a critical investigation by Jerome J McGann( Book )
24 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in English and held by 1,154 libraries worldwide
Claiming that the scholarship and criticism of Romanticism and its works have for too long been dominated by a Romantic ideology--by an uncritical absorption in Romanticism's own self-representations--Jerome J. McGann presents a new, critical view of the subject that calls for a radically revisionary reading of Romanticism. In the course of his study, McGann analyzes both the predominant theories of Romanticism (those deriving from Coleridge, Hegel, and Heine) and the products of its major English practitioners. Words worth, Coleridge, Shelley, and Byron are considered in greatest depth, but the entire movement is subjected to a searching critique. Arguing that poetry is produced and reproduced within concrete historical contexts and that criticism must take these contexts into account, McGann shows how the ideologies embodied in Romantic poetry and theory have shaped and distorted contemporary critical activities

A critique of modern textual criticism by Jerome J McGann( Book )

The poetics of sensibility : a revolution in literary style by Jerome J McGann( Book )
21 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 630 libraries worldwide
Jerome McGann's exciting new work represents a major intervention in Eighteenth-century and Romantic studies. It takes as its prime aim the reading of neglected poetry, principally by women, which qualifies as either poetry of 'sensibility' or poetry of 'sentiment', terms which comprised the revolution in poetic style of the eighteenth century. Later reactions against these new technical and imaginative resources produced a state of cultural amnesia which The Poetics of Sensibility moves to correct. McGann's polemical study is an ambitious effort to begin reconstructing the order of our cultural inheritance. Its aesthetic focus sets it apart from virtually every other work of this kind. The book represents both of the major poetical movements of the past two centuries - romanticism and modernism - as cultural reactions against the procedures of sensibility and sentimentality. Romanticism is seen as an effort to curb or modify what were taken to be the more dangerous tendencies of the sentimental revolution. Modernism's anathema against sentimental styles, on the other hand, framed its argument on behalf of a set of (broadly classical and formalist) literary conventions. The Poetics of Sensibility examines the attitudes and procedures followed by various poets who were developing other, novel resources of poetical language made possible by the Lockean revolution. The range of discussion is extensive, but special emphasis is placed on the formative period of c.1730-1830

Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the game that must be lost by Jerome J McGann( Book )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 545 libraries worldwide
"Jerome McGann demonstrates the programmatic aims of Rossetti's innovative multimedia work by focusing on two issues, one philosophical and one cultural. First, McGann shows how in Rossetti's work high-order thinking processes are modeled and executed as aesthetic practices. Second, from Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelite "art of the inner standing point", McGann argues that Rossetti forces a revision of the cultural norms commonly used for evaluating artistic success and failure."--Jacket
Byron and romanticism by Jerome J McGann( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 492 libraries worldwide
"This collection of essays represents twenty-five years of work by one of the most important critics of Romanticism and Byron studies, Jerome McGann. The collection demonstrates McGann's evolution as a scholar, editor, critic, theorist, and historian. His "General analytic and historical introduction" to the collection presents a meditation on the history of his own research on Byron, in particular how scholarly editing interacted with the theoretical innovations in literary criticism over the last quarter of the twentieth century. McGann's receptiveness to dialogic forms of criticism is also illustrated in this collection, which contains an interview and concludes with a dialogue between McGann and the editor. Many of these essays have previously been available only in specialized scholarly journals. Now McGann's influential work on Byron can be appreciated by new generations of students and scholars."--Jacket

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 441 libraries worldwide
A major poet, writer and painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti was seen as the dominating cultural presence in the second half of the 19th century. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite movement, revised and re-imagined Blake's project of marrying images and texts, and was a shaping influence on Modernist aesthetic ideas and practices. His translations are original poetical works in their own right. Jerome McGann, scholar of the 19th and 20th century, presents a selection of Rossetti's poetry, prose and original translations. The collection is accompanied by McGann's commentaries and notes
A new republic of letters : memory and scholarship in the age of digital reproduction by Jerome J McGann( Book )
13 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"A manifesto for the humanities in the digital age, A New Republic of Letters argues that the history of texts, together with the methods by which they are preserved and made available for interpretation, are the overriding subjects of humanist study in the twenty-first century. Theory and philosophy, which have grounded the humanities for decades, no longer suffice as an intellectual framework. Jerome McGann proposes we look instead to philology-a discipline which has been out of fashion for many decades but which models the concerns of digital humanities with surprising fidelity. For centuries, books have been the best way to preserve and transmit knowledge. But as libraries and museums digitize their archives and readers abandon paperbacks for tablet computers, digital media are replacing books as the repository of cultural memory. While both the mission of the humanities and its traditional modes of scholarship and critical study are the same, the digital environment is driving disciplines to work with new tools that require major, and often very difficult, institutional changes. Now more than ever, scholars need to recover the theory and method of philological investigation if the humanities are to meet their perennial commitments. Textual and editorial scholarship, often marginalized as a narrowly technical domain, should be made a priority of humanists attention."--Publisher's description

Poe and the remapping of antebellum print culture by J. Gerald Kennedy( Book )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 libraries worldwide
Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) has long occupied the position of literary outsider. Dismissed as unrepresentative of the main currents of antebellum culture, Poe commented incisively-in fiction and nonfiction-on nationalism, science, materialism, popular taste, and cultural ideology. Opposing the pressure to write nationalistic "American" tales or from a restricted New England perspective, he produced a body of work held in greater international esteem than that of any of his U.S. contemporaries. In Poe and the Remapping of Antebellum Print Culture, scholars explore Poe's anti-nationalistic Americ
