9780199245437: An Oxford Companion to The Romantic Age: British Culture 1776-1832

For the first time, this innovative reference book surveys the Romantic Age through all aspects of British culture, rather than in literary or artistic terms alone. This multi-disciplinary approach treats Romanticism both in aesthetic terms--its meaning for painting, music, design, architecture, and literature--and as a historical epoch of "revolutionary" transformations which ushered in modern democratic and industrialized society.

About the Author:

By Iain McCalman: Radical Underworld: Prophets, Revolutionaries and Pornographers in London 1795-1840 Clarendon Paperback 1993

From Booklist:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that most reference books on the Romantic Age highlight the literary outpourings of the era. Here is a work that paints a broader picture, taking in the whole landscape of those often turbulent times; revolution, social change, popular culture, law, medicine, the arts, politics, and, of course, literature are among the topics addressed in this comprehensive source.

Instead of the typical, single alphabetical arrangement of short entries, the book employs a two-part approach to the material at hand. The first part consists of just over 40 signed essays on four major themes: "Transforming Polity and Nation"; "Reordering Social and Private Worlds"; "Culture, Consumption, and the Arts"; and "Emerging Knowledges." The essays that are grouped within these themes address topics such as domesticity, empire, exploration, industrialization, novels, and utopianism. This section of the book has its own index. The second part is an alphabetically arranged offering of briefer but more specific (also signed) articles on a variety of terms, persons, organizations, ideas, places, etc. These two parts can be used separately (the second half will be of greater use in a ready-reference situation) or together, because a thorough system of cross-references links the essays to the articles, articles to the essays, essays to essays, and articles to articles. A variety of crisp black-and-white illustrations, including reproductions of period paintings (some full-or half-page size), art from chapbooks, and photographs of notable places or art objects, punctuates the text and adds considerable interest. Instead of a single appended bibliography, each of the essays concludes with a list of sources for further reading.

The interdisciplinary flavor of the work makes it an appealing choice for a variety of collections. Although it is by no means a revisionist history, each topic included is examined in the context of the times, often resulting in a fresh look at some of the icons of the era. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.For the first time in this innovative reference book the Romantic Age is surveyed across all aspects of British culture, rather than in literary or artistic terms alone. The Companion s two-part structure presents forty-two essays on major topics, by leading international experts, cross-referenced to an extensive alphabetical section covering all the principal figures, events, and movements in the broad culture of the period. Aimed at students and general readers as well as scholars, the essays constitute an accessible, pluralistic, and modern social history of the epoch; the alphabetical entries can either be used alongside them, for deeper information on specific subjects, or as a free-standing reference tool. The volume as a whole embraces both high and low culture, and explores its subject across the whole breadth of England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. The book s multi-disciplinary approach treats Romanticism both in aesthetic terms-its meaning for painting, music, design, architecture, and above all literature-and as a historical epoch of revolutionary transformations which ushered in modern democratic and industrialized society. In this period Wedgwood turned taste into a commercial enterprise, Pierce Egan took Britain by storm with his sensational accounts of low-life in the capital, and Mary Shelley created, in Frankenstein, one of the enduring myths of scientific advance. The Companion revitalizes canonical Romantic figures in the context of the historical events, political and linguistic debates, commercial pressures, and plebeian subcultures of their day, as well as bringing back into historical focus individuals and events whose impact has often been muffled or forgotten. With over 100 integrated illustrations, bibliographies accompanying all the major essays, and an index to Part 1, this is the most comprehensive volume of its kind, offering a unique breadth of information to scholars and students of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British culture, literature, and history.
