Gothic romanticism: architecture, politics, and literary form

Gothic romanticism: architecture, politics, and literary form

Duggett, Tom

This series of close readings relates architecture, politics, and literary form to shed new light on the works of Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Southey, offering new insights. Gothic Romanticism, winner of the 2010 MLA Prize for Independent Scholars, is a study of the relationship between British Romanticism and the Gothic Revival. Reading a wide range of canonical and raretexts, and spanning the Romantic discourses of architecture, politics, and literary form, the book recovers the collaborative project of Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Southeyfor a purified 'Gothic' poetry and a 'second Gothic' culture
