While the Victorian era has been extensively covered by scholars and critics, less attention has been given to the period that bridges the gap to Victorianism. Romantic Period Writings 1798-1832 provides a valuable insight into the condition of Britain in the early part of the nineteenth century. Original documents from a range of disciplines and discourses include writings by previously neglected or under-represented women, working-class men, black radicals, and conservative and evangelical polemicists, as well as several previously neglected texts by canonical writers. The writings are organized into sections on Radical Journalism, Political Economy, Atheism, Nation and State, Race and Empire, Gender and Literary Institutions. Each section includes an introduction which contextualizes the following selections.
