Romantic Poems, Poets, and Narrators
Romantic Poems, Poets, and Narrators will be valuable to specialists not only in romantic period studies but in literary theory and poetics as well. Students of Blake, Coleridge, Wordsworth, and Keats will appreciate these refreshingly subtle, tactful, and convincing new readings of the major romantic poems. The book is a scholarly and engaging guide to the various and complex discourses--formalist, psychoanalytic, deconstructive, new historicist--that have provided the terms in which these poems have been and currently are received.
