While the 'Revolution Debate' of the 1790's has been extensively covered by scholars and critics, less attention has been given to the period which bridges the gap to Victorianism. Yet this was an era of crucial social, economic, political and cultural change. Romantic Period Writings 1798-1832 provides a valuable insight into the condition of Britian in the early part of the nineteenth century. It includes original documents from a range of disciplines and discourses. Among the material assembled in the anthology are writings by previously neglected or under-represented women, working-class men, and Black radicals, as well as several unfamiliar texts by canonical writers. The writings are organised into sections on: * Radical Journalism * Political Economy * Atheism * Nation and State * Race and Empire * Gender * Literary Institutions Each section includes a scholarly introduction, select bibliography, and annotations. Contributors include: Ian Haywood, John Seed, Martin Priestman, Simon Edwards, Kate Teltsher, Susan Mathews, Catherine Boyle and Zachary Leader.
