This module is designed to complicate understanding of the literary period known as 'Romantic', through a pluralising range of contrasting and contesting texts, contexts and positions emergent in Britain in the period 1780-1832. The module sets up various critical definitions of Romanticism, and through detailed and historically informed case studies, traces the shifting shapes and interests of Romantic-period literary study. Contrasting theoretical approaches to texts will be engaged to question issues of history, gender, class, creativity, ecology, ethnicity, travel, empire, social change, subjectivity and modernity. The module will also self-reflexively question periodicity and canon formation, require students to consider how textual and cultural value develops in the period and in recent criticism, and asks how viable and useful the term 'Romantic' might be.
