Official URL:


This video essay offers an introduction to the Romantic-period novel. Beginning with the premise that, until recent decades, Romantic-era fiction suffered a critical neglect due to its association with the category of popular fiction, it seeks to emphasize the formal diversity and the cultural and political resonances of the novel in the period. Beginning with a discussion of the formal origins of the Romantic-period novel, it uncovers its key sub-genres and thematic concerns and its significance as an integral component of Romantic print culture.
