    Book details


The British Romantic era (ca. 1775-1830) was a time of contradictions, of growth, and of diversity in all aspects of English life. "Romanticism" originally referred to the works of six male poets: Wordsworth, Blake, Shelley, Coleridge, Keats, and Byron. However, current scholarly attempts to demonstrate that the period encompasses a rich and varied range of poets, essayists, and novelists of both genders have caused the definition to come under debate.

Not limiting itself to these six figures, Literary Research and the British Romantic Era discusses English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh resources for both primary and secondary research within the Romantic Era, including general literary research guides; union library catalogs; print and online bibliographies; manuscripts and archives; microfilm and digitization projects; eighteenth and nineteenth century journals and newspapers; contemporary reviews; and electronic texts, journals, and Web resources. Each chapter addresses the best methods to extract relevant information from the research tools employed, enabling scholars to find relevant materials. The strengths and weakness of core and specialized electronic and print research tools and standard search techniques are also examined.

The focus here on the research process and methodology sets this excellent resource apart from other similar titles. Thoroughly researched and clearly presented, this is an excellent initial offering in the series. Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty/researchers. (CHOICE)This invaluable guide to standard resources for the British Romantic Era is the first in a series of volumes designed to lead scholars through the intricacies of modern literary research....This outstanding book offers much sensible advice and provides source material that will guide both students and professionals in the finding and intelligent selection of material from the overwhelming plethora of information available in this modern age. (American Reference Books Annual)...admirably fulfills its intent: 'to explain the best practices for conducting research in the British Romantic era and to address the challenges scholars working in this era face.' And, it sets the benchmark for the volumes to follow in the important new series. (James L.
