*Many situations in these new countries have been found unwholesome, but an examination of the neighbourhood has commonly traced the circumstances to some local and removable cause: and it is evident that the general healthiness of the climate will improve, in proportion as the forests are felled, and the morasses drained.

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.

Heringman, "'Manlius to Peter Pindar': Satire, Patriotism, and Masculinity in the 1790s"

This essay examines the political satires of John Wolcot (alias Peter Pindar) in the context of the numerous patriotic attacks on their author between 1787 and 1801. Wolcot's satires on George III met with ferocious, politically motivated attacks on the poet's masculinity. These can be explained only in part with reference to the French Revolution: Wolcot's literary combats, and his influence on younger satirists such as James Gillray, also testify to the longer-term importance of sodomy, scatology, and gendered notions of the king's two bodies in English political debate. This essay appears in _Romanticism and Patriotism: Nation, Empire, Bodies, Rhetoric_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (http://www.rc.umd.edu/), University of Maryland.
