Susan Manning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


This commissioned chapter in a landmark volume (The Cambridge History of English Romantic Literature) explores the literary significance of antiquarian, collecting and recovery activities in British literature between about 1720 and 1830, and their impact on Romantic poetry, drama and prose. It recovers important 18th century literary texts and argues for their importance in considering major works of Romanticism, and shows how the antiquarian, romance and balladic contexts enrich our understanding of canonic works by the great Romantic writers
