9780521024754: Shelley and the Revolution in Taste: The Body and the Natural World (Cambridge Studies in Romanticism)

This groundbreaking study addresses the representation of food and drink in the works of Percy and Mary Shelley. With original studies of much-debated texts, it provides new perspectives in recent cultural history and theory concerning medicine and diet in the 1790SH1820 period. Morton shows how food in the social and literary text provided complex and ambivalent ways of signaling ideological preferences. It will appeal to all those interested in the body, ecology and social and anthropological approaches to Romantic literature.

About the Author:

Timothy Morton is Professor of English at Rice University, Houston.

Review:

"...the book has some remarkable strengths that will make it a useful text for scholars interested in Percy Shelly, Romantic-period culture, the extension of New Ethical compassion as a disciplinary tool, and the potential applications of cultural materialism and green criticism." Nineteenth Century Prose

"...offers a superb synthesis of Romantic (and contemporary) literary, political, scientific, and cultural analysis, in which Shelley's vegetarianism, 'the redemptive discourse of natural diet' (p.85), is made brilliantly to play through and illuminate a host of poetic and political concerns." SEL 1500-1900

"His study is informed by an astonishing diversity of scholarship and theory, yet throughout the approach is consistent and consistently innovative, offering new perspectives on the ecology of the body." The Wordsworth Circle

"...will be savoured by those who have an interest in literary figuration of diet and consumption in all periods as well as the Romantic." Notes and Queries

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book brings together the themes of diet, consumption, the body, and human relationships with the natural world, in a highly original study of Shelley. A campaigning vegetarian and proto-ecological thinker, Shelley may seem to us curiously modern, but Morton offers an illuminatingly broad context for Shelley s views in eighteenth-century social and political thought concerning the relationships between humanity and nature. The book is at once grounded in the revolutionary history of the period 1790-1820, and informed by current theoretical issues and anthropological and sociological approaches to literature. Morton provides challenging new readings of much-debated poems, plays, and novels by both Percy and Mary Shelley, as well as the first sustained interpretation of Shelley s prose on diet. With its stimulating literary-historical reassessment of questions about nature and culture, this study will provoke fresh discussion about Shelley, Romanticism, and modernity.
