A special issue of Studies in Romanticism, co-edited by Marianne Brooker and Luisa Calè.
The essays are free to read until the 1st of June as part of the Covid-19 response, allowing everyone the chance to read these excellent essays.
This special issue explores the materiality of romantic collections, using S. T. Coleridge’s Sibylline Leaves (2017) as a starting point for thinking about the tension between the leaf in flight and the bound book, scattered papers and scientific systems, specimens and books to come, paintings and prints, commonplace books and material forms that mediate disability in the archive. Edited by Marianne Brooker and Luisa Calè, with essays by Seamus Perry, Marianne Brooker, Luisa Calè, David Duff, Jessica Roberson, and Tilottama Rajan.
Available through Project Muse (free access until the 1st of June).
