about

Long confounded with a monolithic British entity or misrepresented as Lakers and Cockneys, the diverse regional forms of English Romanticism are ripe for reassessment. Ranging west of a line between the Wye at Tintern and Jane Austens Chawton, this book offers a first reconfiguration of Romantic culture in terms of English regional identity.
NICHOLAS ROE is Professor of English at St Andrews University, UK. He is the author of Wordsworth and Coleridge: The Radical Years (1988), John Keats and the Culture of Dissent (1997), The Politics of Nature: William Wordsworth and Some Contemporaries (2002), and Fiery Heart: The First Life of Leigh Hunt (2005).
