Wordsworth, Jonathan


The age of English Romanticism began with the French Revolution and can be said to have ended with the Reform Bill of 1832, a political frame for a literary convulsion that was always political in instinct. The key works of the period share an assumption (absent from present-day literature) that change in the political system is possible. Jonathan Wordsworth comments of forty such books, enabling the reader to see a particular work, Godwin's Political Justice (1793) or Wordsworth's Excursion (1814) as it was seen by the author's contemporaries. Visionary Gleam discusses both the major and the minor, the well-known and the overlooked, offering a route into the preoccupations of the Romantic period of unusual value.Wordsworth, Jonathan is the author of 'Visionary Gleam Forty Books from the Romantic Period', published 1996 under ISBN 9781854772145 and ISBN 1854772147.
