Romantic Geography PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Romantic Geography free pdf Romantic Geography offers a Wordsworth who engages fully with the political and social concerns of post French Revolutionary Great Britain. Countering established views that Wordsworth and his contemporaries evasively displace the actual world through the idealizing imagination, Michael Wiley provides a fresh materialist model of Romantic displacement by returning the term to its spatial and geographical roots. Eighteenth-century social and political groups contested spaces through maps, travel literature, topographical descriptions and other geographical writings. In this context, Wiley argues, Wordsworth's landscapes reconfigure institutional representations of the land, positing critical alternatives to them. This argument is grounded in the historical sources of Wordsworth's poetry and is informed by recent work in cultural, sociological and geographical studies. Romantic Geography provides fresh insights into some of Wordsworth's most hotly disputed texts. It is important reading for those working in the field of Romanticism and the fast-growing field of spatial studies.
