Tnv Exiicnrvxxvxr Voi Dear Reader,
Welcome to our latest Romanticism catalogue. This remains
one of the strongest and best received areas of our publishing,
demonstrated by the many positive review quotes included
here. As you will see, our list of monographs and essay
collections continues to expand dramatically. This is a good
complement to our strong list of major works especially within
our Pickering Masters series.
Books such as Alex Watsons analysis of Romantic period
marginalia shed new light on aspects of the period which
have not been considered before. Meanwhile Jeffrey Vails
forthcoming edition of The Unpublished Letters of Thomas
Moore will undoubtedly bring out fresh aspects of the character
and views of this compelling fgure.
In addition to a great range of individual books and collections
I am delighted that we have some exciting new series. Poetry
and Song in the Age of Revolution is bound to be of interest to
the vast majority of Romantic scholars. With a wide geographic
spread and a focus on a range of voices, these essay collections
and monographs will have much to say about this turbulent
period. The frst book in our new interdisciplinary series with
the University of Warwick focuses on a fascinating literary
debate that engulfed Italy in the early years of the nineteenth
Our publishing in the areas of empire studies and travel
is enhanced by two engaging books on the exploration of
Australia and the Arctic respectively. Scholars of Blake will
welcome a new essay collection that looks at his works from the
perspectives of masculinity, sexuality, empire and politics.
I hope you fnd these and other titles of interest. We would
welcome any suggestions or proposals that you think would
enhance our ever-growing list.

Wordsworths Poetic
Collections, Supplementary
Writing and Parodic
Brian R Bates
Wordsworths process of revision,
his organization of poetic volumes
and his supplementary writings are
often seen as distinct from his poetic
composition. Bates asserts that an
analysis of these supplementary
writings and paratexts are necessary to
a full understanding of Wordsworths
poetry. He examines Wordsworths
career between 1800 and 1820 to
reveal how supplementary prose,
promotion and parody were
intertwined with debates on the
creation of reading publics, the role
of the press and the enduring literary
character of England.

Romantic Marginality: Nation
and Empire on the Borders of the Page
Alex Watson
Watson argues that writers tried to
marginalize forms of political and
regional identity that conficted with
the interests of the nation-state by
locating them on the borders of the
page. Using Wordsworths Lyrical
Ballads, Watson shows that these
paratexts were a pivotal site of political
and colonial division in Romantic-
period literature.
This is the frst critical study entirely
devoted to annotation in Romantic
literature. Its a brilliant achievement,
inviting us to view Romanticism (quite
literally) from the margins. Nigel

Fashioning the Silver Fork
Cheryl A Wilson
Fashion and celebrity may be twenty-
frst century obsessions, but they were
also key concepts in Regency culture.
Both celebrated and condemned for
their popularity, silver fork novels
were extremely prolifc during this
period. These texts detailed the lives
and loves of London fashionables and
in doing so became a form of conduct
book, offering guidelines for members
of the socially aspirant middle class.
Wilson looks at the social and literary
impact of this signifcant genre and
charts its role in the development of
the novel as a form and its status in
the literary marketplace.

Stays and Body Image in
London: The Staymaking Trade,
Lynn Sorge-English
Stays were the most important article
of womens clothing in eighteenth-
century life. Worn from infancy, stays
were designed to reshape the female
body into an accepted aesthetic ideal.
Sorge-English shows how long-term
use of stays caused serious health
problems and that as they became
more involved in the production
process, women infuenced their
design to become closer to the natural
female form.

The Life of Madame Necker:
Sin, Redemption and the Parisian Salon
Sonja Boon
Suzanne Curchod Necker was one of
the most infuential women of her day:
hostess to a brilliant literary salon,
wife of Jacques Necker, the politically
powerful pre-revolutionary French
fnance minister, and mother to the
great Romantic writer Germaine de
Stal. Madame Necker occupies a
unique position in French social and
cultural history, but, dwarfed by the
posthumous legacies of her husband
and daughter, the last biographical
study of her was over sixty years
ago. Boon breaks new ground by
examining the profoundly corporeal
nature of Madame Neckers life her
debilitating, decades-long psychic
and somatic suffering and subsequent
premature death and curious burial.

Classicism and Romanticism
in Italian Literature: Leopardis
Discourse on Romantic Poetry
Fabio A Camilletti
and Gabrielle Sims
In 1816 a violent literary quarrel
engulfed Bourbon Restoration Italy.
The Romantics wanted an opening up
of Italian culture towards Europe and
the Classicists favoured an inward-
looking Italy, based on its Greco-
Roman roots. Giacomo Leopardi
(17981837), a young poet and
philosopher, wrote a Discourse of an
Italian on Romantic Poetry [1818],
aiming to contribute to the debate
from a new perspective. This study
provides the frst complete English
translation of the Discourse and places
it in context.

Thomas Dunckerley and
English Freemasonry
Susan Mitchell Sommers
Thomas Dunckerley is a late
eighteenth century icon of British
Freemasonry; his story is a fascinating
morality tale of self-invention and
self-deception. Climbing to the
highest echelons of the order, and
long-accepted as something of a hero,
the reality of Dunckerleys life is very
different from the version recorded by
his nineteenth-century biographers.
Sommers has revealed a stunning story
of self-deception and re-invention.
In a shrewd re-examination of the
hagiographic accounts she shows
the sleights of hand underlying our
understanding of the past, its many
twists of fate, and what enthusiastic
biographers do with them. A must-

Henigan demonstrates in each case

Ultimately, she argues, it is neither

within community that most truly

Dialogue, Didacticism and

Dialogues in the Age of Revolution
Adrian J Wallbank
Focusing on non-canonical British
writers Wallbank examines the
evolution of dialogue as a genre
during the Romantic period. He
argues that dialogue often adopted
a didactic stance explicitly geared
towards making an argument sound
persuasive, and demonstrates its
infuence in the development of such
innovations as the realist novel,
philosophical perspectivism and the
advent of psychoanalysis.

Robert Southey (17741843) was
once a prolifc and celebrated writer
of the Romantic school. Yet despite
spending thirty years as Poet Laureate,
Southeys reputation has long been

Wordsworth and Coleridge. Research
on Southeys later poetry (and the
violent responses it provoked at the
time of its publication) has been
hampered by the lack of a modern
critical edition. These four volumes
provide fully-edited, meticulously
annotated texts of the poems Southey
wrote during the latter half of his
career. These volumes build upon the
critical success of Robert Southey:

The Unpublished Letters of
Thomas Moore
Editor: Jeffery W Vail
Thomas Moore (17791852) was one
of the most prominent authors of the
early nineteenth century and was even
referred to as the National Poet of
Ireland. His circle of acquaintance
was huge and included Lord Byron
with whom he almost fought a
duel and Mary Shelley, as well as
many infuential fgures in English
and Irish politics. He did try to fght
a duel with Francis Jeffrey, editor
of the Edinburgh Review, due to an
unfavourable article about his Epistles,
Odes, and Other Poems (1806).
Recently, interest in Moore has
dramatically increased. This collection
presents over seven hundred
previously unpublished letters from
numerous libraries, archives and
other sources in the UK, Ireland and
America. Also included are excerpts
from hundreds of Moores letters
written to his music publisher, James
Power, which have not been published

Depression and Melancholy,
General Editors: Leigh Wetherall
Dickson and Allan Ingram
As a psychiatric term depression
dates back only as far as the mid-
nineteenth century. Before then a wide
range of terms were used; Melancholy
carried enormous weight, culturally
and medically and was one of the
two confrmed forms of eighteenth-
century insanity. At the same time
the melancholy perspective could be
associated culturally with enhanced
sensitivity, as in the work of the poet
Thomas Gray, with creative genius and
intelligence, and even with being in the
height of fashion, as satirized by Pope
in the Cave of Spleen episode of Rape
of the Lock.
This four-volume primary resource
collection is the frst large-scale study
of depression across an extensive
period. Divided chronologically, each
volume addresses a particular theme.

British Family Life,
General Editor: Claudia Nelson
The family was central to Victorian
ideology, and yet the long nineteenth
century saw considerable change
in the family unit. The onset of
industrialization and the expansion of
the British Empire meant that there
were demands and opportunities away
from the home.
Each volume of this collection focuses
on a different aspect of family life: the
experience of childhood; the role of
the husband and father; the role of the
wife and mother; the extended family
and the substitute family. Family is
taken to include not only kin-based
groups, but servants, lodgers, carers
and variations of social welfare.
Drawing on rare printed sources
and extensive archival material, this
collection will provide a balanced,
contextualized picture of family life,

Texts and Contexts
General Editor: Laurie Garrison
In 1787, the entrepreneur Robert
Barker patented a new form of
entertainment that would intrigue
the public for a century to come. This
was the panorama, a massive circular
painting whose effect on the viewer
was deliberately enhanced through
an original apparatus for viewing it.
Others soon joined or competed with
Barker, with other venues cropping up
across London and then spreading to
America and the rest of Europe.
No collection or edition of texts related
to the panorama exists, and the
majority of materials presented here
have not been reprinted since their
frst eighteenth- or nineteenth-century
publication. The short accounts,
programs, reviews, articles and
lectures collected here are the primary
historical sources left to us.

London Opera Observed,
Editor: Michael Burden
Handels Rinaldo, frst performed in
1711, helped to establish the popularity
of the all-sung, Italian opera amongst
London audiences. This did not
meet with universal approval; the
tradition of spoken drama, coupled
with a distrust of a foreign form and
language made opera controversial,
not least in the newly-expanding press.
The rare material in this edition
examines opera not simply as a genre
of performance, but as a wider topic
of comment and debate. It includes
a wide range of documents such as
biographical material on performers,
commentary by London audiences,
proposals for aesthetic and managerial
reforms, controversial reviews by high-
profle critics and introductions to the
opera texts themselves.

Though isolated geographically and

assertive in their opinions, highly
imaginative, inspired at times by
romantic sensibilities far ahead of the
Romantic movement, at times all too
aware of the limitations placed upon
them by the circumstances of their
place and time, yet still managing to
document their lives and times and to
pass that legacy on from generation to

Chartist Literary Landmarks
Editor: Mike Sanders
The Chartist movement remains one
of the most studied social and political
movements in modern British history.
But despite this interest the literary
and cultural dimensions of Chartism
have only recently begun to attract
scholarly attention. This collection
breaks new ground by making
available the most signifcant literary
productions of the Chartist movement,
each volume addressing a different
problem within the Chartist literary
Volume 1 focuses on the decision
of Thomas Cooper to work in the
epic genre, thereby simultaneously
challenging and affrming the claims
of elite culture. Volume 2 follows
Chartist leader, Ernest Jones, in and
through his poetry, and the evolution
of late Romantic tropes in the early
Victorian period. Volume 3 explores
how Chartist authors addressed the
problems posed by working in a
dramatic genre (tragedy) which might
be thought of as hostile to their literary
and political aspirations.

The Poetry of British India,
Editor: Mire n Fhlathin
This edition draws together a selection
of Anglo-Indian poetry from the
Romantic era and the nineteenth
century. The poets engage with India
in different ways: some deal with
the experience of migration, others
respond to the Indian landscape,
whilst the wider project of British rule
in India also provides an important
theme. This extensive body of
literature is not well known, and can
be accessed only in rare books and
periodicals of the nineteenth century.

Newgate Narratives
Editor: Gary Kelly
In 1902, Londons Newgate Prison
was demolished. The building was a
cultural symbol, its grim silhouette
loomed over factual and fctional
contributions to the prison reform
debate which extended through
the late eighteenth and nineteenth
centuries. Commentary ranged from
gallows broadsides and last dying
words; through crusading journalism
and parliamentary reports; to best-
selling novels and hit melodramas.
This body of Newgate literature has
long been out of print but it was
widely known by all classes of readers
in its time and was the context for
the crime literature of Dickens,
Dostoevsky, Dumas, Hugo and Zola.
This fve-volume edition presents a
representative body of Romantic and
early Victorian crime literature.

The Enlightenment in
America, 17201825
Editor: Jose R Torre
Given the signifcance the new world
held in the minds of Enlightenment
thinkers, it is remarkable that scholars
have not more fully documented the
Enlightenment in America. So far,
the body of work on the American
Enlightenment has focused almost
exclusively on two areas politics
and religion. In contrast, scholars
have paid little attention to the
polyglot efforts of American doctors,
scientists, engineers, botanists, poets
and other Enlightenment actors. The
Enlightenment in America flls this
signifcant gap in the discourse.

General Editors: Tim Fulford and

The Romantic Period saw the advance
of the massive British imperial
expansion that was to make it
dominant for most of the nineteenth
century. There was a corresponding
expansion in travel writings, which,
highly popular in their own time,
seemed to bring exotic realms within
the grasp of the reading public and
were a source for ethnographic
and cultural information about
other societies. This selection of
writings refects the diversity of the
literature, revealing something of the
cultural and gender difference of the
travellers, as well as fuelling debates
on colonialism, natural history,
anthropology and slavery.

Literature and Science,

In the eighteenth century science
was used to denote knowledge of
all sorts. Ways of understanding
and representing the world were
being reformulated in a period of
intellectual ferment and artistic
experimentation. In the Royal Society,
in the gentlemans library, in Grub
Street and the ladys closet, the impact
of natural philosophy was registered,
assimilated, extended and sometimes
challenged and rebuffed. Texts are

polymathic nature of the literature of

The Reception of Lockes
Politics: From the 1690s to the 1830s
Editor: Mark Goldie
In these volumes can be traced the
manner in which Locke became both
the idol of the Whig Settlement of
1689 and the key to unravel that
settlement in the name of radical
populism: a Locke made safe for Whig
gentlemen, as well as a Locke who, in
Mary Astells words of 1706, prompted
the question, If all men are born free,
how is that all women are born slaves?
Locke is debated across a gamut of
genres: in formal treatises, polemical
pamphlets, newspaper essays, political
sermons, and cheap tracts aimed at
politicizing the masses.
