Romanticism and animal rights by David Perkins( Book )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In England in the second half of the eighteenth century an unprecedented amount of writing urged kindness to animals. This these was carried in many genres, from sermons to encyclopedias, from scientific works to literature for children, and in the poetry of Cowper, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Clare, and others. Romanticism and Animal Rights discusses the arguments writers used, and the particular meanings of these arguments in a social and economic context so different from the present. After introductory chapters, the material is divided according to specific practices that particularly influenced feeling or aroused protest: pet keeping, hunting, baiting, working animals, eating them, and the various harms inflicted on wild birds. The book shows how extensively English Romantic writing took up issues of what we now call animal rights. In this respect it joins the growing number of studies that seek precedents or affinities in English Romanticism for our own ecological concerns."--Jacket

A history of modern poetry by David Perkins( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[In this volume, the author] deals admirably with those who, in the present canon, are deemed major figures, but he also summons up many poets and modes of poetry now slipping into the "background." He thus restores to us a lost sense of ambiance, an awareness of how various and complex certain periods of poetry were to themselves, before they were simplified.-Back cover
