Covering the major poems by each of the important Romantic poets, the contributors present many significant perspectives in modern criticism—old and new, discursive and explicative, mimetic and rhetorical, literal and mythical, archetypal and phenomenological, pro and con.
This is the first full-length study to examine the links between high Romantic literature and what has often been thought of as a merely popular genre—the Gothic.
