Summary
"The first surprise is that this is a book not about romanticism, but about the writings of the long eighteenth century. Butler had begun to consider the significance of myth, or 'paganism', in the writings of the second generation of romantic poets in Romantics, Rebels and Reactionaries. She was to explore it further in a number of published essays; it was to be the subject of her next, unfinished book. In Mapping Mythologies, however, she presents her account of poets and myth in the eighteenth century not as the prelude to a later, more interesting story, but as having a distinctively different interest of its own. She does not avoid the linear model, but she does not look ahead to the long-deferred miracle. Whereas her work on the later romantics was to chart their attraction to eastern and classical pagan mythologies, the writers she considers in Mapping Mythologies invoke or invent myths native to the British isles"--
