Book Description

June 28, 1996 0521554551 978-0521554558 Digitally Printed 1st Pbk. Version
Tim Fulford examines landscape description in the writings of Thomson, Cowper, Johnson, Gilpin, Repton, Wordsworth, Coleridge and others. He shows how landscape description formed part of a larger debate over the nature of liberty and authority in a Britain developing its sense of nationhood, and reveals the tensions that arose as writers sought to define their relationship to the public sphere. Fulford's innovative study offers a new view of literary and political influence linking the early eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"No brief interpretation can do justice to Fulford's exceptionally rich and nuanced argument. His discussion of Wordsworth and Coleridge as continuators and radical revisers of their eighteenth-century predecessors are illuminating; the chapter on Wordsworth, the longest in the book, offers a convincing interpretation of Wordsworth's politico-poetical career. Throughout, Fulford's readings of texts, both in prose and verse, are subtle and generally compelling." John D. Baird, European Romantic Review

"Fulford's achievement here should be applauded, and his historically informed analysis should generate much further discussion about the relationship between landscape poetry, politics, and history in the near future." Romantic Circles Reviews
