The literature of the Romantic era is steeped in the politics of revolution and reaction. This Companion looks at first and second generation poets such as Wordsworth, Blake, Byron and Shelley and explores their engagement with the turbulent history of their times. Other genres such as drama, fiction and travel writing are also discussed, with close attention paid to texts by Walpole, Austen and Mary Wollstonecraft. Combining thematic analysis with modern critical perspectives, the volume also includes key contextual sections focusing on “Imagination, Truth and Reason”, “Heroes and Anti-heroes” and “Faith, Myth and Doubt”. Features: Analysis of key texts and debates. Extended commentaries provide further in-depth analysis of individual texts. Notes contain extra context and explanations of literary terms. Historical, social and cultural contexts explored in introductory chapters and alongside discussions. Modern critical theory and perspectives in practice. Timelines and annotated further reading.
