Book Awards

  • Winner of Rose Mary Crawshay Prize 2001.

Book Description

Reading, Writing, and Romanticism bridges a perceived gulf between materialist and idealist approaches to the reader. Informed by an historical awareness of Romantic hermeneutics and its later developments (as well as by an understanding of the circumstances conditioning the production and consumption of literature in this period), the book explores how readers are imagined, addressed, figured, and theorised in Romantic poetry and criticism (1790-1830). Models of canon-formation, intertextuality and reader-response are examined alongside the existence of reading-coteries, the social practices of reading, and reforms in copyright. Consideration is given to the philosophical and ideological influences which bear upon the status of reading at this time, as well as to the educational theories and practices which underpin reading-habits. Non-canonical writers are included, and special attention is given to the emergence of women's poetry - its repercussions for the poetics of reception.

Books By Author Lucy Newlyn

William and Dorothy Wordsworth by Lucy Newlyn William and Dorothy Wordsworth, Paperback (September 2016)

William and Dorothy Wordsworth is the first literary biography of the Wordsworths' creative collaboration. Using poems, letters, journals, memoirs, and biographies, it plots the intertwined lives of the Wordsworth siblings and their writing.

Edward Thomas by Lucy Newlyn Edward Thomas, Hardback (November 2011)

Volume II is primarily concerned with Thomas's response to the countryside. A comprehensive introduction provides biographical details, an account of the circumstances of composition, and historical contextualisation of the volume's themes. Thomas's intricate prose is elucidated by a headnote at the start of each work and extensive annotation.

Branch-lines by Lucy Newlyn Branch-lines, Hardback (November 2007)

When Edward Thomas died in the First World War, very few of his poems had been published, but he was recognised as one of the finest and most influential poets. This work captures the range of Thomas' achievement, not least by combining poetry with prose. It also includes an introduction, and four critical essays.
