Summary

How does Romantic poetry read if seen as the product of a coterie of writers, editors, publishers, and critics rather than original lyrics composed by individual geniuses? Romantic Poetry and Literary Coteries explores Romanticism as a discourse characterized by tropes and forms that were jointly produced by literary circles in self-conscious opposition to prevailing social and political values and in deliberate differentiation from the normal practices of contemporary print culture. Considering writing communities such as the Southey/Coleridge circle, the Bloomfield circle, and the Clare circle, Tim Fulford reveals the context in which the composition, publishing and reading of blank-verse effusions, magazine essays, and long-form notebook verse, among others, took place.
