Romanticism, Sincerity and Authenticity

Synopsis

Romanticism, Sincerity and Authenticity by Tim Milnes

The categories of authenticity and sincerity, treated sceptically since the early twentieth century, remain indispensable for the study of Romantic literature and culture. This book, focusing on authors including Wordsworth, Macpherson and Austen, highlights their complexities, showing how they can become meaningful to current critical debates.

Reviews

'When understanding Romanticism, 'Sincerity'
and

'Authenticity '
are crucial concepts. Drawing particularly on the subjective or objective implications (not to mention the fruitful ambiguities) involved

, the writers here find themselves considering relevant aspects of many 'Romantic
writers, from Macpherson and Chatterton to Wordsworth and Jane Austen, in new and absorbing ways

.


- John Beer, Emeritus Professor of English, University of Cambridge, UK.
