Description

This volume examines Eighteenth-Nineteenth- and early Twentieth-Century topics concerning Romanticism from Great Britain, Germany, France and Japan. Contributing to the work's breadth and depth is its treatment of less traditional sources of writing like the pocketbook and prophesy. In addition, it offers an analysis of neglected writers such as Inchbald, Southcott and Kinoshita Noe.
