The Military Memoir and Romantic Literary Culture, 1780-1835

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - Literary Criticism - 269 pages
Examining the little-known memoirs and autobiographies of British soldiers during the Romantic period, Ramsey shows how these popular works profoundly shaped nineteenth-century British culture's understanding of war as Romantic adventure, establishing images of the nation's middle-class soldier heroes that would be of enduring significance through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
