Tomko traces this dichotomy in The Excursion and Essays on Epitaphs. And yet, alongside the Lakers, Scott was vehemently opposed to Catholic enfranchisement.

Romantic-era journalism received some thorough scholarly analysis. Instead, Hessell historicizes the evolution of eighteenth-century journalism, reconnecting these literary figures with the contextual conventions of journalism, which have been largely occluded by literary critics. What has often been interpreted as especially brilliant and groundbreaking reportage by these writers was often only standard procedure, or a product of contextual limitations of parliamentary journalism. Johnsonian invention often simply reflected the necessities of mid-eighteenth-century magazine journalism.

Dickens boasted that he was the best shorthand parliamentary reporter of the s. Yet Hessell suggests that in an age where lively characterization was prized above accuracy, the standards of good journalism were shifting and subtle. Notorious Facts: Publicity in Romantic England, — shows a great deal of scholarly erudition, drawing upon a miscellany of sources: newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, court reports, and cartoons.

But Mulvihill queries their predominantly optimistic and progressive narratives of democratic liberation. Mulvihill addresses the rise of English libel law and its effect upon the skulduggery of party-political altercations, and the public reports of libel trials. He highlights anxieties about the nature of mass literacy in relation to the notion of objective truth, expressed by Coleridge, Bentham, and Kant.

While Notorious Facts has many enlightening and entertaining case studies its lack of a coherent overarching narrative weakens the sense of a strong, unifying critical argument. The year saw a wealth of studies of biographies and assorted life-writings across a variety of unexplored genres.

Rose kept copious journals and commonplace books detailing her voluminous reading habits.

Here Read offers a counter-narrative to the diabolic role Cromek plays in Blakeian hagiography. Like Blake, Cromek could be fiery, impetuous, and difficult. As a youth he trained under the Royal Academician and celebrated engraver Francisco Bartolozzi. He was successful in capitalizing upon the sudden boom in commercial engraving in the s, and like Blake he copied fashionable artists such as Henry Fuseli.

To this end Cromek became secretary to the Chalcographic Society, and promoted unpublished Scottish antiquities. Cromek died of consumption in at the age of In the immediate years following her autobiographical work, Prince fell in with pro-abolitionist Moravians at the Fetter Lane Church, and was involved in a lawsuit with the Blackwoods Tory pro-slaver James McQueen. Jackson presents an apologia for literary biography, largely on the grounds that the lives of authors were of such keen interest to Romantic readers.

In the early nineteenth century the military memoir began to focus more upon the character, exploits, and emotions of the soldier-author. Yet early memoirs suffered from a lack of generic identity, and were sometimes criticized for their dull prose style. In the post-Napoleonic s Moyle Sherer and George Gleig made the military memoir fashionable among the middle classes, relating the experiences of the professional officer class to domestic readers. Although still dwarfed by Byron and Scott, the sales figures for Journal of a Soldier of the Seventy-First [] demonstrated that the military memoir had become an established popular form.

In particular Nicholls focuses upon the colonial adventures of General Gregor MacGregor, who claimed direct ancestry from Rob Roy, and used his supposed Highland pedigree to military advantage in his South American exploits.

She also illustrates a shift from eighteenth-century traditions of moral exemplarity to a nineteenth-century emphasis upon internal emotion. Horne focuses upon two fascinating variations upon the eighteenth-century Robinsonade. Unlike their Defoevian models, progress is gauged by emotional rather than capital growth. Inflected by Rousseauvian primitivism, these tales do not depict morally conventional types, but rounded, experimental agents. In her Historical Tales Agnes Strickland emphasized the role played by famous children throughout history. The radical Harriet Martineau endeavoured to circumvent a Burkean veneration for history, at the same time encouraging mutual understanding and sympathy across class divisions.

Katherine L. Fleming died in , just under 9 years old, having penned various writings, including a volume of poetry. Although now largely forgotten, her posthumous success in the nineteenth century was remarkable. There was a variety of articles dealing with a wide range of topics under the broad aegis of Romantic science. This conference was inspired by the post-New Historicist theoretical tools of Franco Moretti and Thomas Pfau, and sought to draw together interpretations of cultural geography with various connected readings across Romantic literature.

Hewitt demonstrates that maps are not absolute immutable entities. Across the Enlightenment and Romantic era, maps were moulded by changing political, philosophical, aesthetic, and scientific discourses. As an emerging discipline, cartography was a progressive but imperfect science. Catherine E. Ross emphasizes the importance of the eclectic experimentalism of Dissenting academies.

In The Wealth of Nations Smith sees man as commercial, individualist, and somewhat philistine, and is troubled by his propensity for idle and unprofitable activity. Alternatively Ferguson sees the oscillation between industry and idleness as integral to human nature, and mistrusts untrammelled capitalism as potentially alienating.
