British Romanticism And Continental Influences written by Peter Mortensen

 

British Romanticism And Continental Influences written by Peter Mortensen

Overview:

During the 1790s and 1800s, cultural critics became convinced that Britain was being "inundated" by pernicious literary translations imported from the European Continent. British Romanticism and Continental Influences discusses Romantic writers' complex and ambivalent responses to this threatening literary invasion. Confronted with foreign texts that seemed both attractive and repulsive, Mortensen argues, Romantic writers such as Wordsworth and Coleridge publicly distanced themselves from European sensationalism, even as they assimilated and revised its conventions in their own writing.
