Abstract

This project addresses the circumstances surrounding the publication of Henry Francis Cary's The Early French Poets . It identifies three key elements that influenced the revival of the French Renaissance in Britain in the 1820s: the role of British Romantic periodicals and the London Magazine in fostering a discussion of Romanticism, the British Romantic conflict with French Classicism, and the Romantic appropriation of the past and the foreign. Cary's translations and criticism of the French Renaissance poets are analysed within the context of the London Magazine as part of the British argument against French Classicism.
