In an attempt to re-place the controversial and somewhat marginalized writer Robert Southey within the literary context of the 1790s, Smith highlights the writer's influence on other Romantic projects of the period. His argument stresses his belief that Southey's experimentation with poetic form and subject greatly defined the cutting edge of literary fashion in the period. Distributed by ISBS.
