Eros and Vision: The Restoration to Romanticism

SKU: 10666

Deals with literature from 1660 to 1827, discussing writers such as Dryden, Swift, Pope, Johnson, Blake, Radcliffe, Byron, Shelley, Goethe and Rousseau. Austen is mentioned often but is not on the title of a chapter. Discusses the quest for integrity in self and culture, during a time of radically changing values and opening possibilities; and the challenge for writers to develop a canon that knows its history, and that both challenges and reflects the world.
