Abstract:

This collection of original essays by sixteen distinguished scholars explores a wide range of relationships in the Age of Wordsworth: from radical politics in the 1790s to reactionary politics in the 1820; between genres as diverse as social satire and apocalyptic prophecy; the influence of Wordsworth on other writers and artists (John Keats, J. M. W. Turner, Thomas De Quincey, and Dorothy Wordsworth); and connections between Romanticism and Victorian England, nineteenth-century America, and contemporary Freudian psychology. The essays are accessible to an educated general audience, but they will also be of interest to scholars and students of literature. -- From publisher's description.
