作品概要

The beginning of the transition from Romanticism to Victorianism in English literature is examined through works created by three writers — Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley and Robert Browning — as the literary and political backdrop shifted in post-Napoleonic Europe. Despite the sharp line often drawn by scholars between the Romantic and Victorian periods, the author emphasizes the Shelleys' influence on the young Browning, drawing parallels between Percy's high Romanticism and Browning's revisionary poetics. The three writers' attitudes to gender are also discussed, along with their use of historicism and historiography, to shed further light on Romantic and Victorian sensibilities.
