The Romantic period in British culture was an era of extraordinarily diverse and original achievements in literature and the arts, accomplished in a time of great political and social upheaval. This book is the first major interdisciplinary reference guide to provide a broad cultural and historical perspective which presents the aesthetic achievements of great literary figures like Wordsworth and Coleridge, their followers and opponents, alongside their counterparts in the field of art, music, design, science, and the history of ideas, within a comprehensive picture of the period. Forty long essays on key topics, written by major international authorities, are complemented by an alphabetical reference section detailing all the significant figures, works, topics, and major events. Illustrated throughout.
