The reception of P.B. Shelley in Europe by Susanne Schmid( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The widespread and culturally significant impact of Percy Bysshe Shelley's writings in Europe constitutes a particularly interesting case for a reception study because of the variety of responses they evoked. If radical readers cherished the 'red' Shelley, others favoured the lyrical poet, whose work was, like Byron's, anthologized and set to music. His major dramatic works, The Cenci and Prometheus Unbound, inspired numerous fin-de-siècle and expressionist dramatists and producers from Paris to Moscow. Shelley was read by, and influenced, the novelist Stendhal, the political theorist Engels

Valperga, or, The life and adventures of Castruccio, Prince of Lucca by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Valperga (1823), the novel Mary Shelley wrote after Frankenstein, is based on the life of Castruccio Castracani, the fourteenth-century Prince of Lucca. A brilliant soldier and cruel tyrant, he successfully commanded Ghibelline forces in Tuscany against the Guelphs, threatening Florence, their stronghold. Woven into the story of this historical conflict are the tragic destinies of two heroines: Euthanasia, Countess of Valperga, and Beatrice. Described by the author's father, William Godwin, as 'the jewel of the book', Beatrice is a heretic with whom Castruccio falls in love, while Euthanasia finds herself increasingly torn between loyalty to her Guelph roots and her passion for Castruccio."--Jacket
Romanticism's debatable lands by C Lamont( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phrase 'debatable lands' came into use in the sixteenth century with reference to disputed parts of the Anglo-Scottish border. It was Walter Scott, writing in the Romantic period, who brought it to a wider public, and it gradually came to be applied both to disputed territories in other parts of the world and also, by metaphorical extension, to disputes which were not so much geographical but intellectual, political or artistic. The concept of 'debatable lands', because of its denial of a boundary, creates a space outside any acknowledged territory where the unexpected can happen. This new collection of essays uses the phrase as a starting point to explore questions of nation and border, empire and colonization in the Romantic period, exploring a range of genres including biography, scientific and travel writing and antiquarianism
