Prophet and Poet: The Bible and the Growth of Romanticism, Nide 10
Northwestern University Press, 1965 - 204 sivua
The debt of English romanticism to this new interest in biblical poetry, while it has been acknowledged, has never been closely studied, and it is the purpose of this book to examine in some detail the nature and extent of that debt, both in the narrower sphere of metrical forms and in those broader concepts of poetry peculiar to the romantic movement. Such an investigation inevitably involves even wider issues, and this book is really a study of Hebraism and Classicism against an 18th century background.
