Cover of Five Long Winters: The Trials of British Romanticism by John Bugg

In his new book out from Stanford University Press, Five Long Winters: The Trials of British Romanticism, Prof. John Bugg examines the effect of 1790’s English politics on the emerging Romantic Movement. From the publisher’s page: "Mining archives of unpublished documents, including manuscripts, diaries, and letters, where authors were more candid, as well as rereading the work of both major and minor figures, a number of whom were subject to prison sentences, Five Long Winters offers a new way of approaching the literature of the Romantic era."

Recently promoted, John Bugg is Associate Professor of English at Fordham University in New York. He was our fellow from 2007 to 2008.
