A major and highly controversial personage in his own day, Robert Southey has until recently been the forgotten member of the Lake School. This is the first edited volume devoted to the multiple connections between Southey and English Romantic culture, politics, and history. Individual essays explore the significance of Southey's writing, his ability to complicate and reconfigure traditional versions of English Romanticism, and his importance for the construction of nineteenth-century ideologies of empire.
