Summary

In Romantic Aversions J. Douglas Kneale explicates the "double gesture" in the repression of the classical tradition by focusing on its rhetorical afterlife in the literary styles of Wordsworth and Coleridge. He provides new interpretations of both canonical and non-canonical texts and explores aspects of Wordsworth's and Coleridge's manuscripts and poems previously overlooked by scholars. Kneale combines original, close readings with the larger sweep of genre study to reveal new and unexpected convergences in the Romantic tradition.
