research overview

  • Jeffrey Cox works on the literature and culture of the romantic period. His early work helped spark a revival of interest in the drama of the romantic period. More recently, he has been part of a reconceptualization of so-called second generation romanticism, placing Keats, Shelley, and Byron more fully within their cultural context--and particularly within the intellectual circle around Leigh Hunt--and demonstrating the impact of the culture of the Napoleonic War years on these writers. He has just finished a book on the late poetry of Wordsworth, showing how the poet responds to his younger contemporaries. He is currently working on women writers and their response to Byron.
