Summary

Waiting for the millennium was a major feature of British society at the endof the 18th century. But how exactly did this preoccupation shape-and how was it shaped by-the literature, art, and politics of the period we now call Romantic? These essays investigate a series of millenarians both famous and forgotten, from Coleridge to Cowper, Blake to Byron; and explore the artistic and political subcultures of radical London; the religious sects surrounding Richard Brothers and Joanna Southcott, and the poetics of feminism and Orientalism. Romanticism and Millenarianism presents an expanded and rehistoricized canon of writers and artists who shaped key debates about revolution, empire, gender, and sexuality.

Author Biography

Tim Fulford is Professor of English at Nottingham Trent University. Among his books are Landscape, Liberty and Authority, Romanticism and Colonialism (co-edited with Peter J. Kitson), and Romanticism and Masculinity.
