DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Romanticism is widely taught at universities across the globe and is considered integral to the study of British and European literature. Teaching Romanticism addresses the extensive impact of recent research on the canon of Romantic writing and presents innovative, practical approaches to teaching both traditional and newer aspects of the curriculum. The first part of the book, on the changing canon, includes essays on topics such as women writers, slavery and empire, and Romantic theatre. The second part examines a wide variety of teaching methods, such as using information technology, the literary field trip, and engaging students with literary theory. The book also includes a survey of postgraduate study in the UK and North America, course outlines, a chronology, and a guide to further resources. Written by leading academics in the field from Britain, Japan, and the United States, this is an essential text for anyone teaching Romanticism at university level.

Reviews

'Teaching Romanticism is intelligently divided into thematic essays ('new approaches') and case studies in teaching practice. It is most impressive as a compendium of pedagogical experience and constitutes an invaluable source of ideas for anyone faced with the prospect of developing a new module on British Romantic period literature. What emerges from the editors' overview, and from the volume as a whole, is an optimistic, research-led teaching culture, which has benefited from the variousness and curiosity of historicism, and which is open to considerations of gender, class, nationality, marginalised writers and cultures, and interdisciplinarity...' - Anthony Howe, Birmingham City University, British Association for Romantic Studies
