"This encyclopedia is designed to survey the social, cultural and intellectual climate of English Romanticism from approximately the 1780s and the French Revolution to the 1830s. ... Focusing on "the spirit of the age", the book deals with the aesthetic, scientific, socioeconomic--indeed the human--environment in which the Romantics flourished."
Articles on prominent individuals (Byron, Burke, Cobbett, Hazlitt), survey articles on history and literature during the Romantic Era, and other significant topics related to the period. Takes a Europe-wide perspective--outside of Britain, there is significant content on Germany, France, Spain, among other nations.
