Summary
"Romantic Cosmopolitanism is a study of cosmopolitanism in early nineteenth-century Britain, and it approaches cosmopolitanism as an alternative and often overlooked approach to the question of nation in the early nineteenth century. Building out of enlightenment political philosophies such as that of Kant, cosmopolitanism does not mean the absence of national attachment and national limitations but rather involves the co-existence of national demarcations and universal belonging, and in early nineteenth-century Britain, it appears alongside romantic nationalism in the struggle to represent the nation." "Wohlgemut traces this alternative formulation not only in representative fictions of the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century (such as Edgeworth's Irish tales, Byron's Childe Harold and Don Juan, Maturin's Melmoth the Wanderer) but also in British political thought of the period (including Smith's Wealth of Nations, Price's A Discourse on the Love of Our Country, and the discourse of the Edinburgh Review."--BOOK JACKET
