Summary
  • "Starting with a new understanding of what Romantic-era literature is--and who wrote it--the essays here reassess British Romanticism in light of Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, Alfieri, and contemporary Italian figures such as Paganini and the improvvisatore Tommaso Sgricci. The British absorption of Italian literature and culture was mediated by authors residing in Florence, Naples, Pisa, and Rome, including Wordsworth, Coleridge, Hunt, Byron, the Shelleys, and Hemans. Providing insights on topics from the artistic practice of improvisation to the politics of nationalism, this volume ... extends our understanding between the relations between British and Italian culture."--
  • "Although not the first book to deal with the reception of Dante and Italian literature in British Romanticism, Dante and Italy in British Romanticism is not a reiteration of what has already been explored elsewhere. From the artistic practice of improvisation to the politics of nationalism, the essays in this volume break new ground and significantly extend our understanding of the relations between British and Italian culture"--Provided by publisher
