About this book

In this text nine scholars discuss the aesthetics, culture, and science of pleasure in the Romantic period. Richard Sha, Denise Gigante, and Anya Taylor, among others, make a timely contribution to recent debates about issues of pleasure, taste, and appetite by looking anew at the work of figures such as Byron, Coleridge, and Austen.

Reviews

"Romanticism and Pleasure offers a useful collection of essays that, taking an interdisciplinary approach to an often neglected topic, show how pervasive the discourse of pleasure was in the Romantic period. Some essays particularly stand out in that they reveal how a serious approach to pleasure can help us understand some well-known but little-examined or understood features of Romantic literature." - European Romantic Review
