This long-overdue anthology of Romantic literature meets the growing demand for a coherent and flexible transatlantic Romantic reader. It offers a range of representative materials by the most central, as well as non-canonical, North American and British figures. Thematic groupings and companion readings, strategically integrated throughout the book, work together to provide lively and illuminating views of the major literary, cultural, and political debates of the transatlantic Romantic century. Accessible and engaging introductions and headnotes lead to an even greater appreciation and understanding of the prose and poetry of the transatlantic Romantic era.
