About this product
- Description<i>Romantic Globalism: British Literature and Modern World Order, 17501830</i> explores how British literature of the late eighteenth century and Romantic era both reflects and inflects the increasingly global world in which it was produced and consumed. Building on recent work in globalization studies, cosmopolitanism, and critical theory, Evan Gottlieb investigates the ways in which, following the ecomic and historiographical writings of the Scottish Enlightenment, a number of influential Romantic-era authors began representing, mediating, and even critiquing their experiences of globalization in poetry, fiction, and drama. Although modern media tend to represent globalization as an essentially contemporary phemen, many scholars w agree that its fundamental dynamicsespecially its characteristic annulment of spatial and temporal differenceshave been present for several centuries. Moreover, the last decades of the eighteenth century and the first of the nineteenth century saw the convergence of a number of world-changing socio-political developments in the Western world. <i>Romantic Globalism</i> is significant because it is the first extended scholarly study that brings together these lines of inquiry. In so doing, <i>Romantic Globalism </i>t only charts a new course of study for British Romanticism but also suggests how the Romantics visions of globality might still be valuable to us today.
