Hewitt, "Utopianism and Joanna Baillie: A Preface to Converging Revolutions"

Hewitt surveys the scholarly revolution by which "utopia" has been transformed from structural model to strategic process. She posits connections between the new utopian processes and characteristics of Baillie's work, including her resistance to gender stereotypes, her preoccupation with justice, her attention to control of the passions as a precondition for social change, and her use of drama as a thought experiment in which spectators might visit an alternative world and take away knowledge to apply in the "real" one. Hewitt comments on how the papers that follow in this volume, both those that use an explicitly utopian vocabulary and those that do not, further a conceptualization of Baillie in the exploratory terms of the new utopianism.

O'Rourke, "Introduction"

O'Rourke asked a diverse group of professors of Romanticism what might look like the most routine pedagogical question: How do you teach the Ode on a Grecian Urn? The energy and ingenuity with which the contributors to this volume addressed this question gives some sense of the range and the subtlety of the ways in which the enigmas that Keats confronted in a silent urn are being recreated in American (and Australian) classrooms. This essay appears in _Ode on a Grecian Urn: Hypercanonicity & Pedagogy_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (http://www.rc.umd.edu/), University of Maryland.

Thomson, "Teaching Keats's 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' in New Zealand"

Thomson argues for the productivity of teaching Keats's Ode on a Grecian Urn in a context which emphasizes Keats's poetics of encounter and the passionate intensity which characterizes these encounters. Those encounters are studied in lectures and tutorials which explore Keats's literary and cultural context, in particular early nineteenty-century public access to works of art. This essay appears in _Ode on a Greican Urn: Hypercanonicity & Pedagogy_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (http://www.rc.umd.edu/), University of Maryland.
