Writers' Reactions to Napoleon: talk by Giuseppe Albano at the Museum of Bath Architecture

March 5, 2015

'With England's happiness proclaim Europa's Liberty’: Writers’ reactions to Napoleon from Keats to McGonagall

The Romantics – those belonging to both the hopeful and hopeless camps as well as those in between – found rich pickings from Napoleon’s defeat, which also inspired later writers. This talk will offer a series of close readings of texts which have the power to raise eyebrows even when at their most lowbrow.


by Giuseppe Albano, Curator of the Keats-Shelley House, Rome.


This talk will be held at the Museum of Bath Architecture on Wednesday 16th September at 6 pm.

In collaboration with the Jane Austen Festival, Bath and the Herschel Museum of Astronomy's exhibition 'Waterloo and the March of Science' 18th June - 14th December. More information on the Festival Programme can be found here:http://www.janeaustenfestivalbath.co.uk/festival-programme/
