About this book


Gothic Romanticism, winner of the 2010 MLA Prize for Independent Scholars, is a study of the relationship between British Romanticism and the Gothic Revival. Reading a wide range of canonical and raretexts, and spanning the Romantic discourses of architecture, politics, and literary form, the book recovers the collaborative project of Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Southeyfor a purified 'Gothic' poetry and a 'second Gothic' culture.
