The romantic paradox : love, violence, and the uses of romance, 1760-1830 by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 371 libraries worldwide
Why are there so few happily ever afters' in the Romantic-period verse romance? Why do so many poets utilise the romance and its parts to such devastating effect? Why is gender so often the first victim? The Romantic Paradox investigates the prevalence of violence and death in the poetic romances of the Romantic period, and discovers that poets in the period under discussion were also highly skilled at dismembering the genre, allowing its parts - the quest, the hero, the love relationship, the supernatural - to stand in for, even replace, the whole narrative. The violence done to genre reflects the violence condoned by genre: during the Romantic period, the romance systematically destroyed itself. In her exploration of the poetry of the Della Cruscans, Coleridge, Keats, Mary Robinson, Felicia Hemans, Letitia Landon and Byron, Labbe posits that understanding the romance and its violent tendencies is vital to understanding Romanticism itself
Charlotte Smith : romanticism, poetry, and the culture of gender by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 314 libraries worldwide
Smith is shown to be both an innovator and a significant figure in understanding Romantic conceptions of gender.

Romantic visualities : landscape, gender, and romanticism by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 289 libraries worldwide
Romantic Visualities offers a culturally informed understanding of the literary significance of landscape in the Romantic period. Labbe argues that the Romantic period associated the prospect view with the masculine ideal, simultaneously fashioning the detailed point of view as feminised. An interdisciplinary study, it discusses the cultural construction of gender as defined through landscape viewing, and investigates property law, aesthetic tracts, conduct books, travel narratives, artistic theory, and the work of Wordsworth, Keats, Coleridge, Charlotte Smith, Ann Francis, Dorothy Wordsworth
Charlotte Smith in British romanticism by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
"Charlotte Smith is an originating voice of 'the Romantic' whose centrality is at last being recognized. Her early sonnets established the genre as a Romantic form; her novels advanced sensibility as a trope beyond its two-dimensional reliance on emotional facility; and her blank verse initiated one of the most familiar of Romantic verse forms. This volume seeks to draw together the best of current Smith scholarship. Essays by leading Smith scholars are organized according to genre, and contextualized by a substantial introduction."--BOOK JACKET

Writing romanticism : Charlotte Smith and William Wordsworth, 1784-1807 by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 libraries worldwide
What is Wordsworthian Romanticism and how did it evolve? What happens if we read the poetry of Charlotte Smith into the equation? This book argues that what we have commonly labeled the 'Wordsworthian' in fact emerges from the sustained attention the young Wordsworth paid to the thematics of place, history, memory, and subjectivity in Smith's work: a Smithian poetics. What follows is a period of mutual reading, each poet attuned to and absorbing the work of the other, in a virtual partnership more productive to the development of English poetry than any other of the period. Although they met only once, their work shows, throughout the 1790s and until Smith's death in 1806, a common devotion to innovation and experimentation that establishes Romantic poetry. This book demonstrates that the two poets co-wrote a poetics that stands for many readers as representatively Romantic, and represents a significant and original re-evaluation of the Romantic period
The old manor house by Charlotte Smith( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 140 libraries worldwide
"In The Old Manor House (1794), Charlotte Smith combines elements of the romance, the Gothic, recent history, and culture to produce both a social document and a compelling novel. A "property romance," the love story of Orlando and Monimia revolves around the Manor House as inheritable property. In situating their romance as dependent on the whims of property owners, Smith critiques a society in love with money at the expense of its most vulnerable members, the dispossessed." "Appendices in this edition include: contemporary responses; writings on the genre debate by Anna Letitia Barbauld, John Moore, and Walter Scott; and historical documents focusing on property laws as well as the American and French revolutions."--Jacket
Romantic localities : Europe writes place ( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
Romantic Localities explores the ways in which Romantic-period writers of varying nationalities responded to languages, landscapes - both geographical and metaphorical - and literatures. This focus on how writers explore region and place ties in with current scholarly interest with 'transnational' perspectives. The essays featured in this collection come from scholars from around the world and discuss poetry, fiction, travel narratives, and historical and scientific texts. The contributors examine versions of 'home' and 'abroad', as well as issues of 'now' and 'the past'. The concentration on locality is underpinned by explorations of mobility, mutability, sincerity and the real

The history of British women's writing ( Book )
10 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
This period witnessed the first full flowering of women's writing in Britain. This illuminating volume features leading scholars who draw upon the last 25 years of scholarship and textual recovery to demonstrate the literary and cultural significance of women in the period, discussing writers such as Austen, Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley. This period witnessed the first full flowering of women's writing in Britain. Building on the success and popularity of earlier poets, novelists, playwrights, and philosophers, British women consolidated their significance as writers in the second half of the long eighteenth century. They participated in movements like Bluestocking intellectualism, abolition, new understandings of class, religion, and childhood. They initiated literary styles like the novel of sensibility, the elegiac sonnet, and the historical romance. Their writing both signalled transitions (from the Enlightenment to Romanticism, from Romanticism to early Victorianism) and transcended conventional literary periodization. The last 25 years of scholarship and textual recovery have overturned the assumption that women wrote unambitiously and mostly anonymously, concentrating on 'feminine' concerns like the family and the home. Instead, an understanding of the period which sees Mary Wollstonecraft, Dorothy Wordsworth, and Jane Austen as only the more familiar of a host of writers has become standard
