First published in 1969. This study of literary reviewing in the early nineteenth century is concerned with contemporary criticism of the works of the major Romantic poets – Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Keats – and of seven other notable Romantic writers including Hazlitt, Lamb and Scott. The criticism of all works in prose and verse, excluding novels, published by these writers between 1802 and 1824 is described and analysed. This study also considers the policies and practices of the reviews, and their political, religious and moral attitudes in literary matters. This title will be of interest to students of literature.
