Romanticism's Debatable Lands
Claire Lamont, Michael Rossington
Palgrave Macmillan, Jun 15, 2007 - Literary Criticism - 264 pages
This book uses the theme of "debatable lands," a term first applied to disputed parts of the Anglo-Scottish border, to explore aspects of writing in the Romantic period. Walter Scott brought it to a wider public, and the phrase came to be applied, by metaphorical extension, to debates which were not so much geographical but intellectual, political or artistic. These debates are pursued in a collection of essays grouped under the headings "Britain and Ireland" and
Europe and Beyond."
