Romanticism by Cynthia Chase
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This important series takes full account of contemporary literary theory, providing collections of key modern readings of major authors genres and critical approaches. Prefaced by a wide-ranging editorial introduction setting the readings in context and exploring the issues they raise, individual volumes in the series offer the student authoritative and stimulating guides to the best theoretically-informed critical work on subjects from Chaucer to the present. The essays in this volume have all been chosen by Cynthia Chase and are considered to exemplify the best of recent feminist, deconstructive, and "New Historicist" writing - the most important strands in contemporary critical throught on Romantic literature. The collection, with its substantial introduction and grouping of essays, explains the significance of current critical debate by relating its to fundamental critical questions that define romanticism. The book features a wide range of material and detailed headnotes which make this essential reading. It includes contributions from critics such as Paul de Man, Many Jacobus, Marjorie Levinson and Jerome Christensen and offers answers to perhaps the most essential question posed by the Romantic period - what is the role of language in history? The book is aimed at undergraduates.
