Rebellious Hearts: British Women Writers and the French Revolution

Εξώφυλλο
Adriana Craciun, Kari Lokke, Kari E. Lokke
SUNY Press, 7 Ιουν 2001 - 395 σελίδες
This pathbreaking collection engages in the important new work of rediscovering the hundreds of British women writing during the Romantic period, women who we now realize were central, not marginal, to the poetics and ideologies of Romanticism. Yet no previous volume has focused on British women s responses to the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars, or on their participation in the social, economic, religious, and poetic debates surrounding these political conflicts. As the first book to represent the full spectrum of women s participation in the Revolutionary debates, Rebellious Hearts uncovers a rich new field of literary and historical scholarship.
