The Dissolution of Character in Late Romanticism, 1820 - 1839

Jonas Cope

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Critical Studies in Romanticism

  • Describes a synthesis by which debates in many disciplines (novel-writing, periodical-writing, philosophy, phrenology, sociology, medicine, ethics) are distilled into the concept of character associated with literary realism
  • Moves a relatively eclectic group of writers to the forefront of a literary culture traditionally narrowed to focus on Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, John Keats and their legacies
  • Establishes a more comprehensive understanding of late Romantic literary networks by pairing authors rarely studied together (such as William Hazlitt and Letitia Landon)
