This collection of essays by leading and new British scholars demonstrates the different ways in which Romanticism is currently being revalued and reconceived. No longer are scholars working within the constraints of the old canon which insisted on the division of the central and the marginal, for new Romanticism is being realised as a wider range of cultural activity unconfined by genre, gender, class, rhetoric or style.
