Literature and the State in Post-Napoleonic Britain
This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the literature that emerged in the period between high Romanticism and the Victorian era, a literature unified by a shared concern with the relationship between authorship, the state, and individual agency. It identifies a movement called “State Romanticism,” which reconceives both the state and the literary aesthetic in a manner we can understand only by studying the two together. The work of these State Romantics is discussed, and an overview of the subsequent chapters is provided.
