"The first modern study of the Romantic achievement, its origins and evolution both in theory and practice."?Stuart M. Sperry, Jr., Indiana UnviersityIn this remarkable new book, M. H. Abrams definitively studies the Romantic Age (1789?1835)?the age in which Shelley claimed that "the literature of England has arisen as it were from a new birth." Abrams shows that the major poets of the age had in common important themes, modes of expression, and ways of feeling and imagining; that the writings of these poets were an integral part of a comprehensive intellectual tendency which manifested itself in philosophy as well as poetry, in England and in Germany; and that this tendency was causally related to drastic political and social changes of the age.
