9780521604239: Poetry and Politics in the Cockney School: Keats, Shelley, Hunt and their Circle (Cambridge Studies in Romanticism)

Jeffrey N. Cox refines our conception of "second generation" Romanticism by placing it within the circle of writers around Leigh Hunt that came to be known as the "Cockney School." Cox challenges the traditional image of the Romantic poet as an isolated figure by recreating the social nature of the work of Shelley, Keats, Hunt, Hazlitt, Byron, and others. This book not only demonstrates convincingly that a "Cockney School" existed, but shows that it was committed to putting literature in the service of social, cultural, and political reform.

Review:

"This first detailed investigation of a unique literary group is warmly recommended to serious students of Romanticism." Choice

"Poetry and Politics in the Cockney School is,., a groundbreaking study of the relationships, ideological commitments, and cultural productions of the second generation of English Romantics. Cox's book helps us to reassess Leigh Hunt's achievements as poet, editor, and the leader of one of the most important coteries in literary history." William D. Brewer, South Atlantic Review

"...meticulously researched and beautifully written,...[Poetry and Politics in the Cockney School] intergrates the culture of the late-Romantic writers clearly and concretely into the social and political history of the late Romantic period...a wonderful book." European Romantic Review

"Cox's introductory dismantling of the "Cockney School" polemic is thorough and persuasive...This is primary scholarship at its best..." Linda Dowling, Studies in English Literature

"Cox makes an impressive and...successful attempt to present the Hunt circle as `a site for cultural production'..." Robert M. Ryan, The Wordsworth Circle

"...thorough and persuasive. This is a primary scholarship at its best, giving even to such routine acivities as manuscript circulation the purpose, as Cox says in a moment of typical eloquence, of creating "on the page for the reader the generosity, the camaraderie, the collective inquiry, the communal celebration of life that the group offered as the ground for a new society" (p. 81)." SEL

"Cox's well informed and instructive study of Hunt's "Cockney" circle, its writing,life,and times, tells an important story about romantic sociability and collective enterprise. Theresa M. Kelley South Centeral Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Jeffrey N. Cox refines our conception of second generation Romanticism by placing it within the circle of writers around Leigh Hunt that came to be known as the Cockney School . Offering a theory of the group as a key site for cultural production, Cox challenges the traditional image of the Romantic poet as an isolated figure by recreating the social nature of the work of Shelley, Keats, Hunt, Hazlitt, Byron, and others, as they engaged in literary contests, wrote poems celebrating one another, and worked collaboratively on journals and other projects. Cox also recovers the work of neglected writers such as John Hamilton Reynolds, Horace Smith, and Cornelius Webb as part of the rich social and cultural context of Hunt s circle. This 1999 book not only demonstrates convincingly that a Cockney School existed, but shows that it was committed to putting literature in the service of social, cultural, and political reform.
