The Influence and Anxiety of the British Romantics
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This collection of essays examines the preoccupation of Romantic writers and Romantic critics with the presence of ghosts in the text. Contributors refer to theories of intertextuality influence and allusion, authorial presence and absence, and anatomy of literarture. They confront the "spectres" of both artistic and critical precursors in new readings of Romantic texts. The volume also widens the field of critical work on the Romantics' haunting of later writers, demonstrating that romantic influence has reached across the geographical and historical boundaries, examining the work of Henry James, William Rossetti, and the Dutch poet Willem Kloos. It also contains illustrations by William Blake.
