The Wordsworth Circle is an international quarterly learned journal founded in 1970[1] to publish contemporary studies of literature, culture, and society in Great Britain, Europe, and North America during the Romantic period from about 1760-1850.[2] Directed towards scholars, critics, and students, it focuses on the lives, works, and times of such writers as Wordsworth, Coleridge, Blake, Hazlitt, De Quincey, Lamb, Southey, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Sir Walter Scott, Jane Austen, James Beattie, Maria Edgeworth, Mary Robinson, Felicia Hemans, Joanna Baillie, Leigh Hunt, John Clare, Thomas Carlyle, Robert Burns, Walter Savage Landor, and James Hogg; the poetry, novels, drama, essays, publications and publishers. TWC includes non-literary figures (historians, scientists, artists, architects, philosophers, theologians, and social commentators) and topics (science, politics, religion, aesthetics, education, legal reform, and music)—anything that appeared during, impinges upon, or is of interest to Romanticists. Essay-reviews of major books published in the field of romanticism appear in the fourth issue of every volume.[3] Reflecting contemporary interests, TWC is ranging, diverse, and eclectic.[4] Subscriptions include membership in The Wordsworth-Coleridge Association.[5]
