Lyrical Ballads by William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge is a unique work of literature. first published in 1798, it marked a radical change in the direction of English Literature. Lyrical Ballads represented a movement away from the overwrought, highly formal and learned verse of the 18th century and in so doing ushered in a new, more democratic poetic era. Written in the language of the common man and addressing the concerns of the common man, Lyrical Ballads was the first - and remains the most - truly revolutionary collection of poetry, paving the way for the great Romantic poets - keats, Byron, Shelley et al. - and proving that, while there was no actual revolution on the ground, England could still be the most revolutionary of places. Lyrical Ballads was not a single phenomenon but a sequence of four editions spread over seven years; its appearance in English literature was not a historical moment but a sequence of moments - 1798, 1800, 1802, 1805. This edition - based on the 1805 edition, but looking back on each of the previous publications - shows how this collection developed, how it was refined and added to by the authors. No other edition on the market has such a wealth of key background information.

Best known as author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), if not also as mother of Frankenstein's author Mary Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft survived domestic violence and unusual independent womanhood to write engaging letters, fiction, history, critical reviews, handbooks and treatises. Her work on coeducational thought was a major early modern influence upon the development of a post-Enlightenment tradition, and continues to have vital relevance today. Celebrated as an early modern feminist, abolitionist and socialist philosopher, Wollstonecraft had little formal schooling, but still worked as a governess, school-teacher and educational writer. This succinct critical account of that prolific research begins by recounting her revolutionary self-education. Susan Laird explains how Wollstonecraft came to criticize moral flaws in both men's and women's private education based on irrational assumptions about 'sexual character' under the Divine Right of Kings. It was to remedy those moral flaws of monarchist education that Wollstonecraft theorized her influential, but incomplete, concept of publicly financed, universal, egalitarian coeducation.

"Der Tod einer schönen Frau" proklamierte Edgar Allan Poe 1846, "ist ohne jeden Zweifel das poetischste Thema auf der Erde." Diese poetische Koppelung von Weiblichkeit und Tod könnte man leicht als Ausdruck nekrophiler Misogynie, als sadomasochistische Fantasie abtun. Man kann aber auch, und das ist das Anliegen dieses Buches, den schauerlichen Genuss, den eine solche Vorstellung bietet, ernstnehmen und fragen, welche Lüste, welche Ängste, welche Befriedigung und welche Sinnstiftung sich in dieser Todesfantasie manifestieren. Denn die Verschränkung von Tod, Weiblichkeit und Ästhetik bildet ein ebenso reichhaltiges wie beunruhigendes Fundament unserer Bild- und Erzählkultur. a remarkable landmark in theories of representation ... Brilliant, wide-ranging, subtle and sophisticated, this book is an extraordinary scholarly achievment. - Margaret Whitford, Queen Mary and Westfield College, London Difficult if not impossible to absorb at a sitting, Elisabeth Bronfen's arguments need to be lived with, returned to. It's the kind of book which, when borrowed, doesn't get returned very quickly. Living with it, returning to it, one becomes aware of how those eternal verities, sex and death, are in fact changing. - Jonathan Dollimore, Women. A Culural Review Die Untersuchung bildet einen Markstein in der Forschung zur Geschlechterdifferenz, wobei feministische Anliegen nicht Gefahr laufen, entschärft zu werden, sondern durch die Kontextualisierung in gesamtkulturellen Zusammenhängen an Tiefendimension und Brisanz gewinnen. - Natascha Würzbach, Universität Köln Bronfen gibt mit ihrem vielschichtigen Mosaik den Musen einen Teil ihrer Macht zurück ... Sie setzt ihr Bild der toten Frau als Topos für eine umfassende Kulturkritik in Form eines wissenschaftlichen Entwicklungsromans ein, bei dem es massgeblich auf den Prozess der Lektüre ankommt. - Loel Zwecker, Süddeutsche Zeitung
