Five Long Winters: The Trials of British Romanticism

A scholarly monograph studying the relation between literary expression and political repression during the British Romantic period. My goal in "Five Long Winters" is to offer a reconfiguration of our sense of British literary history, as I show that the foundational works of British Romanticism were written not in the mood of revolutionary exultation, nor the later mood of revolutionary despair, but amidst the hushing spectre of the gallows.
