Heinowitz, "The Allure of the Same: Robert Southey's Welsh Indians and the Rhetoric of Good Colonialism"

This essay examines the rhetoric of sameness (as opposed to the more familiar rhetoric of otherness) that characterized British imperial interest in Spanish American during the Romantic era. To do this, it analyzes how Robert Southey's 1805 poem Madoc, a Welsh-Mexican epic set in the twelfth century, builds on the Burkean plea for colonial benevolence in India in order to mount its own vindication of 'good' imperialism in Spanish America. Southey's struggle to exalt traditional colonialism as the great unifier of conqueror and conquered was dogged, however, by internal contradictions as well as by Britain's increasingly aggressive presence in Spanish America. This essay appears in _Sullen Fires Across the Atlantic: Essays in Transatlantic Romanticism_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (http://www.rc.umd.edu/), University of Maryland.

Almeida, "London-Kingston-Caracas: The Transatlantic Self-Fashioning of Simón Bolívar"

This article argues that transatlantic readings of Romanticism must go beyond the limits imposed by a monolingual, Anglophone definition of the transatlantic. An analysis of the bilingual presentation of Simón Bolívar's persona and writings for a London public in publications such as the Jamaica Gazette, Variedades, and the New Monthly Magazine shows how this amplified notion of the transatlantic helps us better understand Britain's political and literary interests in the Americas.

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.

Hewitt, "Joanna Baillie's Ecotopian Comedies"

This essay situates a group of Joanna Baillie’s comedies at the intersection of utopian and ecocritical studies, in the conceptual space where they rethink the dichotomy between nature and culture. Drawing analogies between the “Characteristic Comedy” elaborated in Baillie’s _Introductory Discourse_ and the _Comedy of Survival_ theorized by Joseph Meeker, Hewitt argues that Baillie’s plays seek to identify and encourage traits, including sympathy, conducive to the co-survival of humans in all the environments (social and physical) they occupy. Through examples from her _Series of Plays_, Hewitt investigates how these comedies replace aggressive with cooperative relations implying that humans can establish more responsible households in the world.
