This book addresses the function of the classical world in the cultural imaginations of the second generation of romantic writers: Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, Thomas Love Peacock, John Keats, Leigh Hunt, and the rest of their diverse circle. The younger romantics inherited impressions of the ancient world colored by the previous century, in which classical studies experienced a resurgence, the emerging field of comparative mythography investigated the relationship between Christianity and its predecessors, and scientific and archaeological discoveries began to shed unprecedented light on the ancient world. The Shelley circle embraced a specifically pagan ancient world of excess, joy, and ecstatic experiences that test the boundaries between self and other. Though dubbed the “Satanic School” by Robert Southey, this circle instead thought of itself as “Athenian” and frequently employed mythology and imagery from the classical world that was characterized not by philosophy and reason but by wildness, excess, and ecstatic experiences.

Joseph Cottle of Bristol is best known as the publisher of Lyrical Ballads in 1798. Publisher, editor and author, he was, effectively, the first to publish the work of Wordsworth and Coleridge, Southey and Charles Lamb. He produced an edition of Thomas Chatterton's poems and wrote (rather second-rate) verse epics of his own. His controversial Recollections of Coleridge were notorious for publicizing the poet's opium addiction. His life and correspondence included contact with notables of the period, both inside and outside the literary world: Wesley, Hannah More, the 'milk-maid poet' Ann Yearsley, Humphry Davy, de Quincey, Byron, Mary Russell Mitford and many others. This biography sheds light both on nineteenth-century Bristol and the literary world of the time, and on the emerging Romantic Movement.
