English Literature - Romantic

A guide to English literature - romantic resources in UVic Libraries.

About This Page

The English Romantic literary period began around 1789 at the beginning of the French Revolution and ended just before the beginning of the Victorian period. However, many scholars date the beginning of the Romantic period from the publication of Wordsworth and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads in 1798. This guide provides suggestions to help you find journal article indexes and full text articles, reference resources, books, primary sources, websites and more. Also, check out the other subject guides listed under the related guides tab for more resources that may be relevant to this period.
