Romanticism and the Uses of Genre

Romanticism and the Uses of Genre

English | 1 Dec. 2009 | ISBN: 0199572747 | 272 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
This wide-ranging and original book reappraises the role of genre, and genre theory, in British Romanticism. Analyzing numerous examples from 1760 to 1830, David Duff examines the generic innovations and experiments which propel the Romantic ‘revolution in literature’, but also the fascination with archaic forms such as the ballad, sonnet, epic, and romance, whose revival and transformation make Romanticism a ‘retro’ movement as well as a revolutionary one.
