First Published in 1992, this encyclopedia is designed to survey the social, cultural and intellectual climate of English Romanticism from approximately the 1780s and the French Revolution to the 1830s and the Reform Bill. Focussing on ‘the spirit of the age’, the book deals with the aesthetic, scientific, socioeconomic – indeed the human – environment in which the Romantics flourished. The books considers poets, playwrights and novelists; critics, editors and booksellers; painters, patrons and architects; as well as ideas, trends, fads, and conventions, the familiar and the newly discovered. The book will be of use for everyone from undergraduate English students, through to thesis-driven graduate students to teaching faculty and scholars.

The Romantic period in Britain was dominated by brilliant poets like Robert Burns and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. During this period, there were also great philosophers, talented artists, and original thinkers who did not receive the same attention though their ideas were just as influential. What makes this encyclopedia such a well-rounded guide to the consciousness of Britain during the late 1700s and early 1800s is the inclusion of these lesser-known artists and philosophers along with the era's more celebrated poets. This work provides a synopsis of larger works, defines popular concepts and abstract ideas such as the "Byronic hero," and offers a Works Consulted list at the end of each entry, making access to further information quick and easy. Essential to any academic library's reference collection, this encyclopedia will be coveted by students and professors alike.
