A fascinating and original view of the turbulent 1790s, The Romantics is the last work of the acclaimed historian E. P. Thompson.

Combining his incomparable knowledge of English history with an interpretation of British literature of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, Thompson traces the intellectual influences and societal pressures that gave rise to the English Romantic movement. Writing with great passion and literary force, Thompson examines the interaction between politics and literature at the beginning of the modern age, focusing in on the late1790s—the time of the French and American revolutions—through the celebrated writings of William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Mary Wollstonecraft.

From the Back Cover:

Thompson galvanized audiences in New York and in England with his unique blend of historical analysis and literary acuity as he examined the turbulent 1790s through the work of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Mary Wollstonecraft, and that of such less well-known authors as William Godwin and John Thelwall. Prepared for publication by his widow, Dorothy Thompson, The Romantics contains all of E. P. Thompson's original texts and notes, as well as an overview of the ideas behind his study of the period. Combining a historian's intimate knowledge of contemporary politics with a close and sympathetic reading of the writings themselves, Thompson traces the intellectual influences that gave rise to the English Romantic movement, and examines the societal pressures - paternalism, authoritarianism, respect for tradition, and the French Revolution - that informed it.

About the Author:

E.P. Thompson (1924–1993) was one of England’'s foremost historians and social critics. His books include Customs in Common, Witness Against the Beast, and Making History (all available from The New Press), as well as The Making of the English Working Class.
