British Romantic Drama: Historical and Critical Essays


A systematic explanation of various dimensions of Romantic drama by fore-grounding both the theoretical and practical questions bearing on Romantic drama in its historical situation is attempted in this book. The historicist revaluation of Romanticism to which this volume is committed assumes that an understanding of the historical reach of Romantic cultural expression requires a concentrated investigation of works that challenge dominant forms of Romantic expression.
