Teaching Jane Austen
The essays collected here describe curricular ideas, innovations, and practices that seek to move us beyond simple questions of Austen’s accessibility, relevance, and context. The contributors ask how we might enrich the teaching of Austen’s fiction by seeing her in conversation with manuscript culture, children’s literature, Harry Potter, or Romantic poetry. Collectively, these essays look to...
Wordsworth's Guide to the Lakes
First published in 1810 and then revised over three decades, Wordsworth’s Guide has long been recognized as a crucial text for students of Romantic-era landscape aesthetics, ecology, travel writing, and tourism. The Romantic Circles edition provides access to the rare 1810 text and its images, an extensively annotated and illustrated version of the 1835 text (the last edition revised by...
Verses Transcribed for H.T., edited by Harriet Kramer Linkin

Published here for the first time, Verses Transcribed for H.T. is a manuscript collection of 121 original lyric poems with 72 original illustrations that Mary Tighe prepared in 1805 as she was contemplating publishing a volume of poetry that would feature her epic romance "Psyche; or, the Legend of Love" accompanied by a selection of her lyrics. Instead she opted to print 50...

The six essays collected here suggest that Romanticism exposes us to a materialism that cannot merely be overcome and an idealism with which it is not identical. By reading beyond the texts conventionally associated with Romanticism, and by recasting the critical tendencies–from thing theory to object oriented ontology–through the poets, genres, and critics of Romanticism, these essays position...
This volume is dedicated to both excavating the Romantic genealogies of visuality and charting directions for the ways in which the study of Romantic visual culture may redraw the geographic, temporal, and disciplinary bounds of Romanticism, bringing diverse, and in some instances new, objects and their ethical, political, and aesthetic stakes into view. The essays investigate three broad...

Will the Real Mr. Darcy Please Stand Up? << NASSR Graduate Student Caucus
1 month 3 weeks ago
Jane Austen was in the news again last week—I know this, because when I log onto Google News, it offers tailored entries based on my previous web searches and sticks them right at the top of the feed. I honestly don’t know whether to be delighted or terribly disturbed by this fact. But artificial intelligence issues aside, I found this most recent bout of Austenmania to be quite a curious one. It... Read full post (external link)
Poetical Sketches, Take 2 << The Cynic Sang
2 months 23 hours ago
Work that happens in a linear fashion is, generally, very boring. Our work on Blake’s typographical piece Poetical Sketches has certainly avoided that problem. The original transcription of Poetical Sketches was begun by Ali McGhee at UNC Chapel Hill as the very first typographical project taken on by the Blake Archive. At that point there was no guiding template on how to... << Read full post (external link)
Ancient of Days project << The Cynic Sang
2 months 5 days ago
Sometimes we hear of worthy projects for which funds are being raised, such as the Blake Society’s initiative to purchase Blake’s cottage in Felpham. Another, on a slightly smaller scale, came to our attention recently. The following is excerpted from the original message: My name is Gaelen Armstrong – I’m a Canadian metal artist currently residing in the US. My collaborator and I... << Read full post (external link)
