about

This book is a collection of thirteen essays, some previously unpublished, on Byron and Wordsworth. Drawing on psychoanalysis, textual criticism, and historical scholarship, Manning explores the territory jointly mapped by the works that compel our attention and the theories by which weexplain our engagement. Juxtaposing Byron and Wordsworth, Manning examines the situation of literature in the Romantic period and the interaction between the idea of originality the Romantics fostered and the means of production through which they expressed themselves.

From Our Editors

This collection of thirteen essays, some previously unpublished, on Byron and Wordsworth is united by a continuing endeavor to join formalism with wider concerns. Together, they reconnect romantic literature with the motives from which it springs and the social relations within which it exists.
