The seven contributors to The Mind in Creation bring different critical perspectives -- including historical, textual, and deconstructive methodologies -- to bear on a variety of Romantic authors: Blake, Wordsworth, Byron, Shelley, and Keats. Together, their essays offer a representative view of the diversity of Romantic studies, from Byron's use of history to Blake's theory of illustration. A retrospective essay by Woodman himself surveys the past and anticipates the future of Romantic studies in the twentieth century. The Mind in Creation offers a uniquely Canadian perspective: the senior scholars and younger critics who have contributed to this volume -- some of them colleagues and former students of Professor Woodman's -- are all professors of literature at Canadian universities. The Mind in Creation brings together both traditional and innovative approaches to Romanticism in honour of a man whose prolific criticism and lifelong commitment to teaching literature have truly been acts of the mind in creation -- inspirational, exemplary, and lasting. The contributors include: David L. Clark, Jared Curtis, J. Douglas Kneale, W.J.B. Owen, Tilottama Rajan, Ronald Tetreault, and Milton Wilson. The collection also provides a selected bibliography of Ross G. Woodman.
