The French Revolution and the British Novel in the Romantic Period

Series:

Edited By A.D. Cousins, Dani Napton and Stephanie Russo

This book is a major reassessment of the French Revolution’s impact on the English novel of the Romantic period. Focusing particularly – but by no means exclusively – on women writers of the time, it explores the enthusiasm, wariness, or hostility with which the Revolution was interpreted and represented for then-contemporary readers. A team of international scholars study how English Romantic novelists sought to guide the British response to an event that seemed likely to turn the world upside down.
