This volume brings together an impressive range of established and emerging scholars to investigate the meaning of `life' in Romantic poetry and poetics. This investigation involves sustained attention to a set of challenging questions at the heart of British Romantic poetic practice and theory. Is poetry alive for the Romantic poets? If so, how? Does `life' always mean `life'? In a range of essays from a variety of complementary perspectives, a number of major Romantic poets are examined in detail. The fate of Romantic conceptions of `life' in later poetry also receives attention. Through, for examples, a revision of Blake's relationship to so-called rationalism, a renewed examination of Wordsworth's fascination with country graveyards, an exploration of Shelley's concept of survival, and a discussion of the notions of `life' in Byron, Kierkegaard, and Mozart, this volume opens up new and exciting terrain in Romantic poetry's relation to literary theory, the history of philosophy, ethics, and aesthetics.
