This book explores the conjunction of authorship and family life as a distinctive cultural formation of Romantic-era Britain. It traces an alternative history of Romantic authorship, one that lies on the cusp between a vanishing manuscript culture and the dominance of print, grappling with an evolving tension between the private and public spheres.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Pursuing this aspect of literary history enables Levy to add an important dimension to our understanding of the complexity of Romantic print culture, in part by offering a more nuanced sense of the relations between manuscript and print cultures...Levy's focus on the collaborative processes of various family members adds a layer of historical specificity to this emphasis on the ongoing connections between print and manuscript technologies....Levy's focus on the family as a site of cultural production also casts important new light on debates about sociability which have developed in the wake of Gillian Russell and Clara Tuite's groundbreaking collection, Romantic Sociability ...In doing so, Family Authorship , like Dreaming in Books and Romantic Misfits , goes a long way to 'help[ing] us to see how the printed book was a far more richly imagined and far more diversely used media object than we have traditionally assumed' (Piper 5).' - Paul Keen, European Romantic Review
