Description

Zusammenfassung British State Romanticism examines how late Romantic writers rethought aesthetics and agency in order to take part in a modernizing British state.

"[British State Romanticism] is marked by carefully worked-out readings that illuminate the interplay between the idea of the state and textual detail . . . One already knows that these authors supported some version of the British Establishment, but Frey helps one see thatparticularly in the cases of Scott, Austen, and De Quinceytheir conservatism is not especially nostalgic or Burkean."

Auteur
Anne Frey is Assistant Professor of English at Texas Christian University.

Texte du rabat

Examines how Wordsworth, Coleridge, Austen, Scott, and De Quincey portray specific state and imperial agencies to debate what constituted government power, through what means government penetrated individual lives, and how non-governmental figures could assume government authority.



Résumé
British State Romanticism contends that changing definitions of state power in the late Romantic period propelled authors to revisit the work of literature as well as the profession of authorship. Traditionally, critics have seen the Romantics as imaginative geniuses and viewed the supposedly less imaginative character of their late work as evidence of declining abilities. Frey argues, in contrast, that late Romanticism offers an alternative aesthetic model that adjusts authorship to work within an expanding and bureaucratizing state. She examines how Wordsworth, Coleridge, Austen, Scott, and De Quincey portray specific state and imperial agencies to debate what constituted government power, through what means government penetrated individual lives, and how non-governmental figures could assume government authority. Defining their work as part of an expanding state, these writers also reworked Romantic structures such as the imagination, organic form, and the literary sublime to operate through state agencies and to convey membership in a nation.
