The Romantic movement originated in the revival of balladry and song and later absorbed the political and intellectual energies of the French Revolution, transforming received modes of expression and sparking a far-reaching debate on the power of the imagination and the nature of authorship. Studying poets and prose writers from 1760 to 1830, this module traces the development of the Romantic aesthetic, highlighting national and regional traditions within `British¿ Romanticism while also exploring its imaginative engagement with the wider world. Among the authors studied are Blake, Wordsworth, Keats, Hazlitt, Anna Barbauld, Burns and Thomas Moore.
