Beschreibung

In Religion, Toleration, and British Writing, 1790-1830, Mark Canuel examines the way that Romantic poets, novelists and political writers criticised the traditional grounding of British political unity in religious conformity. Canuel shows how a wide range of writers including Jeremy Bentham, Ann Radcliffe, Maria Edgeworth and Lord Byron not only undermined the validity of religion in the British state, but also imagined a new, tolerant, and more organised mode of social inclusion. To argue against the authority of religion, Canuel claims, was to argue for a thoroughly revised form of tolerant yet highly organised government, in other words, a mode of political authority that provided unprecedented levels of inclusion and protection. Canuel argues that these writers saw their works as political and literary commentaries on the extent and limits of religious toleration. His study throws new light on political history as well as the literature of the romantic period.

Pressestimmen

'Like the best books, Canuel's makes us account for our assumptions, and its discussions of Coleridge and of Wordsworth provocatively seek to realign our fustier beliefs about the religious apostasies of each writer.' The Times Literary Supplement 'Refreshingly provocative ... an exhilarating work of timely scholarship, lucid in its organizing claims, ingenious in the prosecution of its argument, illuminating about particular texts, and ceaselesssly articulate.' Studies in English Literature
