Acerca de


Romantic Presences is a set of meditations in prose and poetry on a range of images and topics from the repertoire of early nineteenth-century English poetry and prose. Many of the images are familiar, stock properties of the Romantic tradition -- e.g. the skylark, the nightingale, the sigh. Others are not precisely images but historical figures who have gained a mythic status -- e.g. "Robert Burns," "S. T. Coleridge." And finally, there are images that have no place in the traditional repertoire because they come from women's writing -- e.g. "washing day." Such "new" elements of Romanticism have been folded in with the old, unobtrusively, in order to create the impression that all implicitly were already there. This book is not intended to be a series of explications of poetry. Instead, images lift themselves out of their formal and functional settings, coming forward in their own right as "presences," recovering their power for current readers.

From the Back Cover:

Casting brilliant new light on some of the most beloved poetry in the Western tradition, Romantic Presences is a set of meditations in prose and poetry on a wide range of images from early 19th-century English writing. Some of the images are familiar Romantic symbols - the skylark, the nightingale, the sigh. Others are literary personages of the Romantic period - from Robert Burns to Coleridge - who have become legends and images. Still others are almost entirely new because they come from the little explored realm of women's writing. Together they help recover the power of Romantic poetry for a new generation of devoted readers.
