English Literature from the Restoration Through the Romantic Period New!
Both the form and content of literature today owes much to the developments that took place in England between the Restoration and Romantic periods. The emergence of the novel triggered the creation of new genres and accompanied a rise in literacy throughout the country. As new dimensions were added to both poetry and prose, writers explored new styles and voices to articulate a fuller emotional range. This volume examines the English writers who helped shape the social, political, and religious climate of the age, and immerses students in the history of narratives that continue to enchant audiences today.
