The romantic paradox : love, violence, and the uses of romance, 1760-1830 by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 399 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
Romantic visualities : landscape, gender, and romanticism by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 316 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 : romanticism, poetry, and the culture of gender by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )

Smith is shown to be both an innovator and a significant figure in understanding Romantic conceptions of gender. As the first book devoted to a serious critical study of Smith's poetry, Charlotte Smith: Romanticism, poetry and the culture of gender will appeal to professional scholars and students alike."--BOOK JACKET
Writing romanticism : Charlotte Smith and William Wordsworth, 1784-1807 by Jacqueline M Labbe( Book )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 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
Charlotte Smith in British romanticism by Jacqueline Labbé( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 224 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
The old manor house by Charlotte Smith( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 195 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."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
During the seventeenth century, in response to political and social upheavals such as the English Civil Wars, the Exclusion Crisis, and the Popish Plot, women produced a wide variety of writings in both manuscript and print. This volume represents recent scholarship that has uncovered new texts as well as introducing new paradigms to further our understanding of women's literary history during this tumultuous period. Topics include the category of the 'woman writer' and networks among writers; the interplay between pamphlet and literary culture; the prominence of religious discourse in women's writing; new perspectives on established genres such as poetry, drama and€fiction; the recovery of until recently neglected sites of writing, such as manuscripts and funeral monuments; a reassessment of the value and import of the genre of letters; and new approaches to texts both now canonical and newly discovered through the lenses of sexuality, science and race studies, postcolonialism, orientalism, political thought, and military studies
