about

Analyzing real, speculative, and imaginary schemes of migration to and from Britain, Romantic Migrations addresses three interrelated movements: between France and Britain after the French Revolution, between Britain and North America after the American Revolution, and between West Africa and Britain after English slavery was outlawed. At this time and within these spaces, radical changes destabilized Britons’ sense of individual, local, and national selfhood. Wiley ably illuminates how the British literature of migration registered the destabilizations and negotiated new possibilities for international, transnational, or global selves in a new and still-changing world.

Michael Wiley is Associate Professor of English, University of North Florida. He is the author of Romantic Geography: Wordsworth and Anglo-European Spaces, The Last Striptease, and many articles on British Romantic literature.

Editorial Reviews

"Romantic Migrations is a fascinating study of Romantic period emigrations which addresses the fundamental issue of 'what constitutes physical, mental, moral, and spiritual selfhood in a time of instability and uncertainty?' (147) In doing so, it opens up new vistas for scholarly exploration in the literature of the period, providing  a more complicated understanding of the Romantic concern with place, location and self, and restoring a sense of the vibrant and fluid world of travel, exploration, and movement, as well as the enormous dimensions and implications of the voyages of peoples to, and sometimes back to, their places of national and local origin."--The Wordsworth Circle "Recovering at least some of the many ways that British Romantics imagined their relations with and to France, America, and Africa, Wiley has produced a scholarly study that opens the way for more 'post-postcolonial' approaches. Such approaches, I believe, should be welcomed by all who value the continued exploration and elucidation of the literature and culture of the long eighteenth century."--Romantic Circles Reviews"Always clear, often elegant, Wiley is a perceptive and persuasive close-reader. He resists easy generalization and provides the kind of unexpected detail that refocuses debate."--Tim Fulford, Professor of English, Nottingham Trent University"Wiley's new study is an excellent and timely addition to that now substantial body of criticism concerned with the global context of Romanticism . . . it opens up new vistas for scholarly exploration in the literature of the period, providing a more complicated understanding of the Romantic concern with place, location and self, and restoring a sense of the vibrant and fluid world of travel, exploration, and movement, as well as the enourmous dimensions and implications of the voyages of peoples to, and sometimes back to, their places of national and local origin."--The Wordsworth Circle
