Product description


“This brilliant collection of essays is stimulating and useful for anyone with an interest in Romantic print culture. Such is the clarity and insight of each essay that scholars of all stages will find thought-provoking readings of many aspects of Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine. … this is an informative and engaging book which prompts our own re-thinking.” (Meiko O’Halloran, The BARS Review, Issue 48, Autumn, 2016)

"This much-needed volume reminds us not only why Blackwood's was the most influential periodical publication of the time, but also how its writers, writings, and critical agendas continue to shape so many of the scholarly concerns of Romantic studies in the twenty-first century." Charles Mahoney, Associate Professor, University of Connecticut, USA

"...perhaps the most nuanced portrait yet of the formative years of one of Britain's most influential periodicals ...both a pleasure to read and so valuable to periodical print culture research of the nineteenth century... this project is ambitious in scope, meticulously researched and edited, thoroughly and accurately indexed, and critically important to our ongoing examination of Blackwood's." Charles Snodgrass, Nineteenth-Century Contexts

"Overall, the collection shows the innovativeness of Blackwood's and the achievement of an able man together with a tight group of authors who shared his vision, ambition, and goals in a highly competitive environment. Above all, the essays highlight that Blackwood's offered a platform for lively dialogue between its own authors and those of rival periodicals. With its cross-references, this collection is a platform for similar dialogues and conversations among twenty-first-century scholars on this fascinating, influential, and highly innovative nineteenth-century periodical." Isabel Seidel, Victorian Periodicals Review

"The essays in Romanticism and Blackwood's Magazine are remarkably consistent in quality, length, and design .Each essay succeeds in making a distinct point about Blackwood's and tying it explicitly or implicitly to the editors' goal of revealing the breadth, depth, and complexity of Maga's conservatism." Regina Hewitt, Victorians Institute Journal
