About the Author:

Review:

'Concept looks good ... I like the idea... they should do very well' (Lee Morgan, Head of Sales at Compass)

'this is a book which we would like our first years to have read - a guide which gives the information without which a student would be entirely at sea.' - Professor Lisa Hopkins, Sheffield Hallam University (from proposal)

'[this] series offers both the student reader and teacher exciting and invaluable interventions in and reorientations around questions of history, culture, and period ... With brio, verve, and an admirable brevity, the series grounds our understanding of literature and culture in thought-provoking and highly original ways. ... an indispensible series that will set the benchmark for all such surveys and overviews.' - Julian Wolfreys, Professor of Victorian Literary and Cultural Studies at the University of Florida.

'Sharon Ruston's Romanticism provides a detailed and comprehensive survey of the literature of the Romantic period and its social, historical and intellectual contexts. This study weaves from an impressive range of texts and histories a narrative of the writings of the male and females writers whose work we describe as engaging with that complex and contested term Romanticism. Alive to the social and political milieu in which Romantic period writers lived, work and thought, Ruston's study is an exemplary and attractive introduction to this fascinating period of literary endeavour.'~ Professor Peter J. Kitson, University of Dundee, UK
