English Romantic Irony

To explore the various structural and rhetorical devices used by Coleridge, Byron, Keats, Shelley, Emily Bronte, Carlyle, Browning, Carroll, Woolf and Yeats to create and de-create simultaneously a mythic order or symbolic language. Romantic irony may be defined as a philosophical vision of the universe as grounded on becoming rather being. Works of romantic irony engage in an artistic process of simultaneous creation and de-creation.
