Summary
"Long confounded with a monolithic British entity or misrepresented as Lakers and Cockneys, the diverse regional forms of English Romanticism are ripe for reassessment. Ranging west of a line between the Wye at Tintern and Jane Austens Chawton, this book offers a first reconfiguration of Romantic culture in terms of English regional identity"--
