Romanticism, Radicalism, and the Press specifically examines the relations that developed among British authors of the Romantic period and the Radical culture whose oppositional discourse-both in written texts and in extra-literary materials-is one of the most prominent aspects of British political and social life of the period. One unique feature of this volume is its deliberate broadening of the field of materials to include not just "literature" but also other aspects of writing culture including reviews, trial transcripts, philological studies, propaganda, and verbal and visual satire and parody. The featured essays explore the connections that exist between radical discourse and Romantic poetry, popular writing, periodical reviewing, and middle-class and aristocratic cultural production. The essays offer diverse views on the significance of the publishing trade during the Romantic period, and on Radical publishers in particular as reflectors and shapers of public opinion, literary form and technique.
