Romantic Identities: Varieties of Subjectivity, 1774-1830

Front Cover
A defining feature of Romantic writing, critics have long agreed, is its characterisation of the self in terms of psychological depth. Many Romantic writers, however, did not conceive of the self in this way, and in Romantic identities Andrea K. Henderson investigates Romantic writing that challenges the 'depth' model, or operates outside its domain. Henderson explores various forms of discourse and their perceptions of identity, examines subjects ranging from obstetrics to gothicism, and considers writings by Radcliffe, Byron, Scott, and Shelley, among others.
