Rhyming Reason: The Poetry of Romantic-era Psychologists

Front Cover
Pickering & Chatto, 2009 - Literary Criticism - 276 pages
"During the Romantic era, psychology and literature enjoyed a fluid relationship. Faubert focuses on a little-known group of psychologist-poets who grew out of the liberal literary-medical culture of the Scottish Enlightenment. They used poetry as an accessible form to communicate emerging psychological, cultural and moral ideas - concepts which were echoed by so many canonical Romantic poets that we now think of them as distinct features of Romantic literature."--Publisher's website.
