About

This engrossing narrative history of European Romanticism focuses on the interconnected life stories and diverging trajectories of poets, dramatists, novelists, and musicians in the wake of the French Revolution (with particular attention to Coleridge, Wordsworth, Shelley, and Byron).

A kaleidoscopic portrait of Europe in an era of tumultuous change, as experienced and communicated by the great literary figures of the age. Set against the hopes and dreams inspired by the French Revolution, the disillusion caused by its failure and the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars that followed, Rupert Christiansen draws the threads into an exciting narrative.
