Autobiographical Writing And British Literature, 1783-1834
James TreadwellISBN: 0199262977;
Book DescriptionWhat did autobiography mean to Romantic readers and writers? How do autobiographical texts of the period reflect, express, and negotiate these conditions? Answering these questions and more, James Treadwell examines a wide variety of Romantic texts, with single chapters devoted to works by Coleridge, Byron, and Lamb. By preserving a continuous relation between the texts and their contexts, this book offers the first proper study of what is actually meant by "Romantic autobiography."
