About this product
- DescriptionExpectation of the millennium was widespread in English society at the end of the eighteenth century. The essays in this volume explore how exactly, this expectation shaped, and was shaped by, the literature, art, and politics of the period we w call romantic. An expanded and rehistorized can of writers and artists is assembled, a group united by a common tendency to use figurations of the millennium to interrogate and transform the worlds in which they lived and moved. Coleridge, Cowper, Blake, and Byron are placed in new contexts created by original research into the artistic and political subcultures of radical London, into the religious sects surrounding the Richard Brothers and Joanna Southcott, and into the cultural and political contexts of orientalism and empire.
- Author BiographyTIM FULFORD is Professor of English at Nottingham Trent University. He has published many books on Romanticism and, in 1993 edited Coleridge's Visionary Languages with Morton D. Paley.
