Download e-book for iPad: Remaking Romanticism: The Radical Politics of the Excerpt by Casie LeGette

By Casie LeGette

This e-book exhibits that the publishers and editors of the novel press deployed Romantic-era texts for his or her personal political ends—and for his or her mostly working-class readership—long after these works’ unique e-book. It examines how the literature of the British Romantic interval used to be excerpted and reprinted in radical political papers in Britain within the 19th century. The brokers of this tale have been certain via neither the chronological march of literary historical past, nor through the unique type of the literary texts they reprinted. Godwin’s Caleb Williams and poems via Wordsworth, Southey, Coleridge, and Shelley seem all through this ebook as they seemed within the 19th century, in bits and items. Radical publishers and editors conscientiously and purposefully excerpted the works in their contemporary previous, excavating valuable political claims from the midst of much less amenable texts, and remaking texts and authors alike within the process.
