These essays express a common belief that the study of Romantic literature must be at once professionally serious and personally engaging. Topics discussed range from Wordsworth to Lady Caroline Lamb, and from Blake and Burke to the contemporary Irish poet Paul Muldoon. Each essay also offers close readings of essential works on English and Irish Romanticism. Introducing the collection is a tribute by the celebrated Romanticist Peter Manning.
