Burgess, Miranda J.
Burgess examines what Romantic-period authors meant by the term "romance." Richardson, Scott, Austen and Wollstonecraft are evaluated in terms of political economy and moral philosophy. She shows how these authors, by engaging in discourse with the ideas of their time, made important contributions to the development of Britain's identity. Cambridge UP. 2000. Paper. List price $55.
