(Studien zur Englischen Romantik, Bd. 4)

As the double plural of the title indicates, this volume addresses once more the problem of the irreducible heterogeneity not only of European Romanticisms but also of its British variants. Assembling selected papers from the 11th International Symposium of the German Society for English Romanticism, it is designed to deal with intriguing questions of cross- and countercurrents, of conspicuous non-contemporaneity, of unity in diversity, of difference and plurality. Combining case studies with more theoretical reflections, the collection marks a new stage in the reconceptualisation of Romanticism.
