About the Authors
  • The persistence of Romantic thought and literary practice into the late twentieth century is evident in many contexts. Though the precise meaning of the Romantic legacy is contested, it remains stubbornly difficult to move beyond. This collection of essays by prominent critics and literary theorists explores the continuing impact of romanticism on a variety of authors and genres, including John Barth, William Gibson, and John Ashbery, while writers from the Romantic and Victorian period include Wordsworth, Byron and Emily Brontë. This book considers the mutual impact of postmodernism and Romanticism.

    •  Was the first book to look at influence of Romanticism on contemporary literature and literary theory
    • Contains all-star cast
    • Wide range of contemporary and Romantic writers discussed
