Romanticism And The Materiality Of Nature – Research and Read Books, Journals, Articles at Questia Online Library

Romanticism And The Materiality Of Nature – Research and Read Books, Journals, Articles at Questia Online Library: “In Romanticism and the Materiality of Nature, Onno Oerlemans embarks upon an ambitious project to re-situate Romantic poetry in the hard, physical reality of the material world. This study endeavors to place several of the Romantic poets, especially Wordsworth and Shelley, within the larger intellectual and material contexts of their period, attending not only to the social and cultural currents that shape poetic discourse, but also to the concrete physical substrate of poetic production: the very ‘rocks, and stones, and trees’ that form the literal and irreducible subject-matter of poetry (40).”
