Abstract

Romantic Localities explores the ways in which Romantic-period writers of varying nationalities responded to languages, landscapes - both geographical and metaphorical - and literatures. This focus on how writers explore region and place ties in with current scholarly interest in 'transnational' perspectives. The essays featured in this collection are by scholars from around the world and discuss poetry, fiction, travel narratives and historical and scientific texts. The contributors examine versions of 'home' and 'abroad', as well as issues of 'now' and 'the past'. The concentration on locality is underpinned by explorations of mobility, mutability, sincerity and the real.
