“A Handbook of Romanticism Studiesis an engaging and exciting collection of essays edited by Joel Faflak and Julia M. Wright. Organised around a set of key terms – including ‘imagination’, and ‘poetics’, as well as ‘race’, ‘gender’, ‘drama’, ‘satire’, and ‘science’, – the volume charts the ‘sea changes’ that Romanticism studies has undergone during the last thirty years (p.6). . . In its declared endeavour ‘to help the reader through this renovated and diverse field’ (p.6), A Handbook is unquestionably successful.”  (Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies, 25 November 2015)

A Handbook of Romanticism Studies features a collection of original essays by leading scholars, examining  the literature of the Romantic period through the lens of critical and cultural theory. The entries explore key terms organized under the headings of Aesthetics and Media, Theories of Literature, Ideologies and Institutions, and Disciplinary Intersections. Some of these terms have been central to Romanticism studies for some time, such as imagination, sublime, and poetics. Other terms reflect critical trends of the last thirty years, including philosophy, race, historiography, and visual culture. The result is a collection which provides both introductory overviews and in-depth analyses of a variety of topics, offering a wide range of entry points to the study of Romanticism, from debates over the formal properties of high art to the impact of philosophical and scientific debates on conceptions of culture and cultural works. A Handbook of Romanticism Studies is an accessible and indispensible resource providing both students and scholars with a rich array of historical and up-to-date critical and theoretical contexts for the study of the literature and culture of the Romantic period.
