Romantic Poems, Poets, and Narrators will be valuable to specialists not only in romantic period studies but in literary theory and poetics as well. Students of Blake, Coleridge, Wordsworth, and Keats will appreciate these refreshingly subtle, tactful, and convincing new readings of the major romantic poems. Sitterson also provides a short course in the history of the reception of these poems. The book is a scholarly and engaging guide to the various and complex discourses?formalist, psychoanalytic, deconstructive, new historicist?that have provided the terms in which these poems have been and currently are received. At its deepest level, Romantic Poems, Poets, and Narrators is an engaging meditation on the value of reading poems, especially narrative poems. It will challenge the most erudite specialists to rethink their assumptions about interrelations (and the possibility of mutual coexistence) among formalist, deconstructive, and historicist approaches to poetry.
