- Radical Romantics' traces the myriad ways in which authors resist the imperative of colonial and imperial conceptions of space. In studying texts that range from William Blake's visionary poetry to prophetic pamphlets, from Lord Byron's Eastern romances to travel narratives about Jerusalem and Africa, this book explores moments where imaginative space and territorial space overlap in the service of radical geographies.
