Welcome to Romanticism Redefined
Romanticism Redefined: Pickering & Chatto and The Wordsworth Circle is a searchable collection of works focusing in the period between 1800 and 1830, that will bring academic research libraries a new, genre-redefining electronic collection of Romantic-era literature. In partnership with Pickering & Chatto Publishers, Alexander Street Press will publish in this collection canonical and previously unrecognized writers from Britain, the British Empire, and North America.
Travels, Explorations and Empires, 1770–1835
The Romantic period was very rich in popular travel accounts that became the main source of cultural information about other peoples and their societies. The selection of writings in this 8 volume set published by Pickering & Chatto, “reflects the diversity of the literature, revealing something of the cultural and gender difference of the travelers, as well as fuelling debates on colonialism, natural history, anthropology and slavery.”.
The History of Suffrage, 1760-1867
This six volume set presents reprints of original and often rare pamphlets from metropolitan and provincial sources, tracts, caricatures, parliamentary debates, and other material on suffrage. It covers the expansion of suffrage to middle class and working class men, and their efforts to extend these reforms to women and the colonies.
The Works of Charlotte Smith
Known mostly as a poet, in the words of Wordsworth, 'to whom English verse is under greater obligations than are likely to be either acknowledged or remembered', this Pickering and Chatto´s 14 volumes set brings to the contemporary public all of Charlotte Smith´s fictional works, since the majority of her novels have never been reprinted.
