Robert Southey : a life by Mark Storey( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 521 libraries worldwide
Robert Southey was a figure of major importance on the literary and political scene from the 1790s until his death in 1843. He lived through the French Revolution, the Napoleonic wars, the dawn of the industrial age and the coronation of Queen Victoria, was the contemporary and friend of Coleridge and Wordsworth, admired and vilified by Byron and Hazlitt, the foremost man of letters of his day. Yet so far has his reputation been eclipsed by that of his better-known peers that even the correct pronunciation of his name (to rhyme with 'mouthey', as Byron joked) has been forgotten. This new biography tells the fascinating story of a complex and contradictory man, the mirror of his age, and sets him centre-stage to provide a new perspective on familiar events and figures

The problem of poetry in the Romantic period by Mark Storey( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 393 libraries worldwide
"The relationship between the various Romantic manifestos and the major poetry of the time is here examined by one of our leading critics of Romanticism. In spite of the apparent confidence associated with so many of these writers, Mark Storey argues that there is an underlying unease about the validity of poetry, perhaps best represented by Wordsworth's lines: 'We Poets in our youth begin in gladness;/ But thereof comes in the end despondency and madness'. The question, 'What is a poet?' is frequently asked, and many of the answers are involved with issues of identity, which in turn are reflected in the poetry. The doubts about individual abilities are matched by doubts as to what poetry can actually achieve: eventually there is even a sense that poetry can be destructive, and that the poet is best either silent or dead. Separate chapters are devoted to Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats and Shelley, John Clare, Byron, and George Darley, all of whom confront themselves in their work."--BOOK JACKET

Rural fictions, urban realities : a geography of Gilded Age American literature by Mark Storey( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
"The diminishment of rural life at the hands of urbanization, for many, defines the years between the end of the Civil War and the dawn of the twentieth century in the U.S. Traditional literary histories find this transformation clearly demarcated between rural tales-stories set in the countryside, marked by attention to regional dialect and close-knit communities-and grittier novels and short stories that reflected the harsh realities of America's growing cities. Challenging this conventional division, Mark Storey proffers a capacious, trans-regional version of rural fiction that contains and coexists with urban-industrial modernity. To remap literary representations of the rural, Storey pinpoints four key aspects of everyday life that recur with surprising frequency in late nineteenth-century fiction: train journeys, travelling circuses, country doctors, and lynch mobs. Fiction by figures such as Hamlin Garland, Booth Tarkington, and William Dean Howells use railroads and roving carnivals to signify the deeper incursions of urban capitalism into the American countryside. A similar, somewhat disruptive migration of the urban into the rural occurs with the arrival of modern medicine, as viewed in depictions of the country doctor in novels like Sarah Orne Jewett's A Country Doctor and Harold Frederic's The Damnation of Theron Ware. This discussion gives way to a far darker interaction between the urban and the rural, with the intricate relationship of vigilante justice to an emerging modernity used to frame readings of rural lynchings in works by writers like Bret Harte, Charles Chesnutt, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and Owen Wister. The four arenas-transport, entertainment, medicine, and the law-used to organize the study come together in a coda devoted to utopian fiction, which demonstrates one of the more imaginative methods used to express the social and literary anxieties around the changing nature of urban and rural space at the end of the nineteenth century. Mining a rich variety of long neglected novels and short stories, Rural Fictions, Urban Realities provides a new literary geography of Gilded Age America, and in the process, contributes to our understanding of how we represent and register the cultural complexities of modernization."--Publisher's website
