about

The categories of authenticity and sincerity have been treated with scepticism since at least the early twentieth century, but they remain indispensable for the study of Romantic literature and culture. This book, focusing on authors including Byron, Coleridge and Austen, aims to relocate the terms within the context of current critical debates.
TIM MILNES is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh, UK.  KERRY SINANAN is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of the West of England, UK.
