Even as dominant twentieth-century cultural movements have contested Romantic myths of redemptive Nature, individualism, perfectibility, the transcendence of art, and the hearts affections, the Romantic legacy survives as a point of tension and of inspiration for modern writers.

Rejecting the Bloomian notion of anxious revisionism, The Monstrous Debt argues that various kinds of influences, inheritances, and indebtedness exist between well-known twentieth-century authors and canonical Romantic writers. Among the questions asked by this volume are: How does Blakes graphic mythology submit to redemptive translations in the work of Dylan Thomas?

How might Ted Hughes strong readings of a snaky Coleridge illuminate the mercurial poetic identity of Sylvia Plath? How does Shelley sustain the work of W. B. Yeats and Elizabeth Bishop with supplies of imaginative oxygen? In what ways does Keats enable Bob Dylan to embrace influence? How does Keats prove inadequate for Tony Harrison as he confronts contemporary violence? of kitsch into something new and strange? The Monstrous Debt seeks to broaden our sense of what influence is by defining the complex of relations that contribute to the making of the modern literary text.

Scholars and students of the Romantic era will enjoy this informative volume.
