American publishing in the long nineteenth century was flooded with readers, primers, teaching-training manuals, children's literature, and popular periodicals aimed at families. These publications attest to an abiding faith in the power of pedagogy that has its roots in transatlantic Romantic conceptions of pedagogy and literacy.

The essays in this collection examine the on-going influence of Romanticism in the long nineteenth century on American thinking about education, as depicted in literary texts, in historical accounts of classroom dynamics, or in pedagogical treatises. They also point out that though this influence was generally progressive, the benefits of this social change did not reach many parts of American society. This book is therefore an important reference for scholars of Romantic studies, American studies, historical pedagogy and education.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This fascinating collection provides a rich range of well-researched and clearly written essays focusing on Romanticism, pedagogy, and the child in nineteenth-century United States literatures and culture. These smart, inviting essays will change the ways that readers think about United States education movements in the nineteenth century and today." -- Laura Laffrado, Department of English, Western Washington University, USA

'Here, the aim of Elbert and Ginsberg is to offer "a sustained analysis of the interrelationships among pedagogies, Romanticism, and the figure of the child" (7). This they achieve masterfully.' - Cynthia Schoolar Williams, Wentworth Institute of Technology, European Romantic Review, 27:4
