This study of the Romantics--Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Austen, Scott, Bryon, Shelley, and Keats--places these richly varied writers into their proper historical setting. Butler relates the French and American Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, the expansion of agriculture, trade, and industry, and growing economic and social pressures to the cultural forces which shaped their work. She reveals the common factors which engaged the separate efforts of so many individual creative minds, and the fierce personal and artistic politics of an age in the midst of profound change. Demonstrating that the literature produced during this dynamic, restless time is not as homogenous as is generally assumed, Butler illuminates the ways in which these various experimental works reflected radically new sensibilities and aspirations.

About the Author:

Marilyn Butler is King Edward VII Professor of English Literature at Cambridge University. She is also the author of Jane Austen and the War of Ideas (Clarendon Press, 1975), Maria Edgeworth: A Literary Biography (Clarendon Press, 1972), Burke, Paine, Godwin and the Revolution Controversy (ed.) (CUP, 1984), and a biography of Peacock.

Review:

Mrs. Butler has a wide range of critical and human sympathy. She is both shrewd and witty, and she ensures that we will re- read with keener appreciation the works she discusses. * Naomi Bliven, New Yorker * Full of information and insights for the reader." Rosemary Ashton, TLS

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1985. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Age of Revolutions and its aftermath is unparalleled in English literature. Its poets include Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley, and Keats; its novelists, Jane Austen and Scott. But how is it that some of these writers were apparently swept up in Romanticism, and others not? Studies of Romanticism have tended to adopt the Romantic viewpoint. They value creativity, imagination and originality - ideas which nineteenth-century writers themselves used to promote a new image of their calling. Romantics, Rebels and Reactionaries puts the movement in to its historical setting and provides a new insight in Romanticism itself, showing that one of the most dynamic and stressful periods of modern times fostered a literature that was itself various and contradictory.
