Romantic Migrations: Local, National, and Transnational Dispositions
Analyzing real, speculative, and imaginary schemes of migration to and from Britain, Romantic Migrations addresses three interrelated movements: between France and Britain after the French Revolution, between Britain and North America after the American Revolution, and between West Africa and Britain after English slavery was outlawed. At this time and within these spaces, radical changes destabilized Britons’ sense of individual, local, and national selfhood. Wiley ably illuminates how the British literature of migration registered the destabilizations and negotiated new possibilities for international, transnational, or global selves in a new and still-changing world.
