Review Quotes
"Romanticism and Millenarianism, a cornucopia reaching from William Cowper in the eighteenth century to Albert Schweitzer in the twentieth, demonstrates bountifully and variously how the French Revolution precipitated in the Romantic period, on all major figures and a dozen little known today but particularly influential, a millenarian rain." --Carl Woodring, Woodberry Professor of Literature Emeritus, Columbia University

Summaries
Main Description
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.
