Romanticism and the Uses of Genreav David Duff1233
This wide-ranging book explores the generic innovations that propel the Romantic 'revolution in literature', but also the fascination with archaic forms such as the ballad, sonnet, epic, and romance. It shows how the tension between the drives to 'make it old' and 'make it new' generates one of the most dynamic phases in the history of literature, whose complications are played out in the critical theory of the period as well as its poetry, prose and

Karen Weisman, Studies in Romanticism The question of genre is still one of the thorniest in literary criticism, and its complexities persist beyond all theoretical paradigms brought to bear on it. Romantic genre, arguably the very ground of our cultural conundrums about reference, historicity, and class, has found a worthy scholar in David Duff, who gathers the dense materials of his subject with an unblinking rigor ... judicious and impressive
Richard Cronin, The Wordsworth Circle a remarkable achievement ... Duff writes lucidly and eloquently... His book is a pleasure as well as an education to read.
Ross Wilson, Times Literary Supplement Duff provides illuminating evidence for the view that the Romantic period was acutely genre-conscious... this is a richly detailed and admirably researched book that will prove invaluable to all students of Romanticism
Ian Duncan, Studies in English Literature 1500-1900 the most comprehensive study of the literary field of Romantic poetry to have appeared since Stuart Curran's landmark Poetic Form and British Romanticism (Oxford, 1986). Duff brings a historically more dynamic, developmental understanding of genre, its historical roots, and its formation within the institutions of literary production... Authoritative in range and command
Adrian J. Wallbank, Modern Language Review an ambitious, timely, and insightful appraisal... Duff's chapters are eclectic, comprehensive, and packed with detail, and... will undoubtedly benefit both undergraduates and scholars alike in their quest to fathom the underlying complexities and inherent tensions associated with the 'uses of genre', not just in the Romantic period but throughout the eighteenth century and beyond.
J. Douglas Kneale, Review of English Studies Duff's very fine study... adds significantly to our understanding of the complexities of a topic that in its day was conceptually and practically all over the map
Erik Martiny, English Studies Duff's recent work on Romantic poetry shows the extent to which genre studies are very much alive and kicking. Drawing on German and English Romantic theory and practice... Duff's book is to be saluted for its engaging richness and subtlety
Stephen C. Behrendt, British Association of Romantic Studies Bulletin and Review Duff's elegant, lucid prose and his careful documentation reinforce his compelling thesis that during the Romantic era genres (and genre theories) were neither degraded nor compromised but were, to the contrary, revived, subverted and most of all recombined for strikingly new artistic and ideological purposes. Books that offer a genuinely 'fresh' look - a startlingly new perspective - are rare: this is one such book, and reading it is richly rewarding.
Christopher R. Miller, European Romantic Review Anyone interested in a careful and fair-minded assessment of neoclassical genre criticism and the intellectual heirs and rebels it produced would d...
