Alexander Street Press Launches Collection Of Romantic-Era Literature

October 27, 2011

OCTOBER 27, 2011 (ALEXANDRIA, VA) -- Electronic publisher Alexander Street Press, announces the release of Romanticism Redefined: Pickering & Chatto and The Wordsworth Circle, an online collection of romantic-era literature previously unavailable in electronic format.

Romanticism Redefined contains over 120,000 pages of primary texts from London-based Pickering & Chatto Publishers, as well as another 10,000 pages comprising the only complete digital version of The Wordsworth Circle, a quarterly international academic journal for the study of English Romantic literature, culture and society.

“We are extremely excited to offer this collection to scholars of the romantic era,” noted Isabel Lacerda, editor of Romanticism Redefined. “Scholars and students can now rediscover these works in a new way through our full-text searching and Semantic Indexing, allowing for the tracing of new relationships among the works.”

Focusing on the “second generation” of writings, those from 1800-1830, Romanticism Redefined contains important texts that are often overlooked. With an emphasis on literature – poetry, novels, short fiction and drama – but also containing letters and diaries; political, philosophical, theological and sociological works; literary criticism; historical writings and more, the collection brings access to previously inaccessible works.

Selected titles from Pickering & Chatto’s collection include Conduct Literature for Women, 1770-1830 (six volumes); Works of Charlotte Smith (fourteen volumes), Nineteenth-Century English Labouring-Class Poets (three volumes) and Parodies of the Romantic Age (five volumes). Also featured are the works of notable writers such as Maria Edgeworth, Joanna Baillie, Thomas DeQuincey, William Godwin and Mary Russell Mitford.
