What did autobiography mean to Romantic readers and writers? How do autobiographical texts of the period reflect, express, and negotiate these conditions? Answering these questions and more, James Treadwell examines a wide variety of Romantic texts, with single chapters devoted to works by
Coleridge, Byron, and Lamb. By preserving a continuous relation between the texts and their contexts, this book offers the first proper study of what is actually meant by "Romantic autobiography."
