Abstract

298 Romanticism problems of cultural and social cohesion and being surprising insights into the poetry published in the European with redefinitions of nationalism, identity, 1820s and 30s. and cultural displacement, Saglia teaches us that there Stewart’s monograph reconsiders the so-called are immediate lessons to be learnt from the past, and ‘dark ages’ of English poetry. In particular, he explores from the 1815–1832 period in particular, when the doubt that plagued these poets about the staying continental European traditions became indispensable power of their work and their fear that they were for the development of British Romantic culture. living through an age of poetic decline, in which ‘real’ Carmen Casaliggi poetry was being replaced with commercial, usually Cardiff Metropolitan University ‘feminine’, poetry that appealed to the masses in the DOI: 10.3366/rom.2022.0571 form of beautifully produced but ephemeral, poetically vapid annuals. Stewart’s aim is to challenge the standard literary narrative about this period of poetry, showing how these poets’s feelings of doubt about David Stewart, The Form of Poetry in the 1820s and writing during the undefined period between 1830s: A Period of Doubt (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018).
