Abstract

"The Landscapes of the Sublime, 1700-1830" is a major new study of the place of the 'natural sublime' in the cultural history of the eighteenth century and Romantic period. Drawing on a range of scholarship on the eighteenth century and Romantic period, on the wider category of 'the sublime' in Western and European thought, and on the praxis of literary and historical exegesis, the book generates new cultural histories of the different species of the 'natural sublime' encountered by British and European travellers and explorers during the eighteenth century and Romantic period, including: the Alps; the Italian volcanoes, Vesuvius and Etna; the Arctic and the Antarctic; the deserts of central and southern Africa; and the universe being revealed by the new astronomy.
