Cian Duffy, British Romanticism and Denmark.

Edinburgh: Edinburg University Press, 2022.  £ 85 / 272 pages

British Romanticism and Denmark shows how the articulation in British Romantic-period writing of the idea of a ‘Northern’ cultural identity – shared by Britain and Denmark and rooted in the Classical Scandinavian
past – played an important role in the emergence and development of Romanticism and Romantic nationalism in both countries. By addressing a wide range of Nordic as well as Anglophone scholarship, this study offers new perspectives on British, Danish and European Romanticisms, and on the relationship between them.
