Summary:
"Studies of British Romanticism have traditionally tended to envisage it as an intensely local, indeed insular, phenomenon. Yet, just as the seemingly isolated British Isles became more and more central in international geo-political and economic contexts between the 1780s and the 1830s, so too literature and culture were characterized by an increasingly close and relevant dialogue with foreign and especially Continental European traditions, both past and contemporary. Diego Saglia casts new light on the significantly transformative impact of this dialogue on Britain during the years that saw a return to unimpeded cross-border cultural traffic after the end of the Napoleonic emergency. Focusing on modes of translation and appropriation in a variety of literary and cultural forms, this book reconsiders the notion of the supposed intrinsic insularity of Britain through the lens of new key questions about the national, international and transnational features of Romantic-period literature and culture"-- Provided by publisher.
"This book explores the intersections of local and national concerns with international perspectives in the literature and culture of Romantic-period Britain. In doing so, it tackles issues that are of particular relevance to current Romantic studies and their increasingly wide-ranging examinations of the cosmopolitan connections of British literature and culture at the turn of the nineteenth century"-- Provided by publisher.
