Abstract This lecture will provide an outline of the Romantic period in British literature (c.1770 - 1832). Particular attention will be paid to the processes of canon-building that established the Romantic period as a cornerstone of cultural and aesthetic modernization in spite of the fact that only a small proportion of the works produced in this era can actually be called ‘Romantic’ in any definable sense of the term. Largely neglected or scorned in its own time, what came to be known as ‘Romantic’ art and literature pointed to the future: in many ways the aesthetic paradigm of Romanticism is still with us, and the lecture will present a systematic account of its basic tenets and its importance for modern culture at large.
