            This book brings to light the significance of bodily pain for the literature, philosophy, and science of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. When writers of the Romantic period explored the implications of physical and mental sensitivity, bodily hurt gave rise to ...troubling but irresistible questions. This book looks back to the medical debates of the 1740s that made pain central to philosophical thinking about the nature of life, and forward to the development of surgical anaesthesia in 1846, when it was revealed for the first time that the processes of life could be separated altogether from feeling. Davies brings Romantic studies in conversation with the recent work in medical anthropology that offers a fresh understanding of the pain of the body. Extending ongoing debates about literature and medicine in the Romantic era, he argues that for a number of Romantic-period writers, pain became central to ethical thinking about the singularity or separateness of individual people.

            This volume brings together a wide range of scholars to offer new perspectives on the relationship between Romanticism and philosophy. The entanglement of Romantic literature with philosophy is increasingly recognized, just as Romanticism is increasingly viewed as European and Tr...ansatlantic, yet few studies combine these coordinates and consider the philosophical significance of distinctly literary questions in British and American Romantic writings. The essays in this book are concerned with literary writing as a form of thinking, investigating the many ways in which Romantic literature across the Atlantic engages with European thought, from 18th- and 19th-century philosophy to contemporary theory. The contributors read Romantic texts both as critical responses to the major debates that have shaped the history of philosophy, and as thought experiments in their own right. This volume thus examines anew the poetic philosophy of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Blake, Shelley, and Clare, also extending beyond poetry to consider other literary genres as philosophically significant, such as Jane Austen's novels, De Quincey's autofiction, Edgar Allan Poe's tales, or Emerson's essays. Grounded in complementary theoretical backgrounds and reading practices, the various contributions draw on an impressive array of writers and thinkers and challenge our understanding not only of Romanticism, but also of what we have come to think of as literature and philosophy.

            Exploring the rhetorical and phenomenological links between shame and reticence, this book examines the psychology of Shelley's anguished poet-Subject. Shelley's struggles with the fragility of the 'self' have largely been seen as the result of thinking which connects emotional h...yperstimulation to moral and political undermining of the individual 'will' --

            Since her death , people have got Jane Austen wrong.
