Summary

Romantic Indiansconsiders the views that Britons, colonists, and North American Indians took of each other during a period in which these people were in a closer and more fateful relationship than ever before or since. It is, therefore, also a book about exploration, empire, and the forms of writing that exploration and empire gave rise to--in particular the form we have come to call Romanticism. Among the authors discussed are Wordsworth, Hemans, Coleridge, and the Native Americans Copway, Tanner, and Norton.
