Product Description


"Connell seems to have unearthed every possible work and author relating to political economy, popular education, and religious politics; the result is a rich, dense, and convincing study that deconstructs pieties of the scholarly left and right. . . . His book is persuasive because it is thick with evidence and always interested in exploring the larger implications of the subtle shades of opinion he finds in the printed discussions of the era. . . . [An] immensely learned and scholarly work"--College Literature

a broader context for the Romantic era Feb. 26 2006
By W Boudville - Published on
Format: Paperback
Connell takes us back to the Romantic Age, with an analysis of the key figures of that era. The emphasis in his book is on writers such as Shelley and Wordsworth. But he places them and their works squarely in the context of the political and social movements then occurring.

Thus we see descriptions of parliamentary struggles. And of the economic thoughts of Malthus, Ricardo and Smith. The musings of early industrial capitalism. Perhaps, the book seems to suggest, some of the literary figures can be understood in part as being influenced by those other ideas, and reacting to them.

Connell's synthesis is interesting, because many histories of this era might study the economists and politicians totally separately from the literary writers.
