Family Authorship and Romantic Print Culture explores the conjunction of authorship and family life as a distinctive cultural formation of Romantic-era Britain. Through examination of the practices and texts of literary families, the book traces an alternative history of Romantic authorship, one that lies on the cusp between a vanishing manuscript culture and the dominance of print; that reflects a struggle in Romantic self-identity between communities of feeling and individual genius; and that grapples with an evolving tension between the private and public spheres.
MICHELLE LEVY teaches Romantic Literature and Culture at Simon Fraser University, Canada, where she is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English.
