In 1829 Robert Southey published a book of his imaginary conversations with the original Utopian: Sir Thomas More; or Colloquies on the Progress and Prospects of Society. The product of almost two decades of social and political engagement, Colloquies is Southey's most important late prose work, and a key text of late 'Lake School' Romanticism. It is Southey's own Espriella's Letters (1807) reimagined as a dialogue of tory and radical selves; Coleridge's Church and State (1830) cast in historical dramatic form. Over a series of wide-ranging conversations between the Ghost of More and his own Spanish alter-ego, `Montesinos', Southey develops a richly detailed panorama of British history since the 1530s - from the Reformation to Catholic Emancipation. Exploring issues of religious toleration, urban poverty, and constitutional reform, and mixing the genres of dialogue, commonplace book, and picturesque guide, the Colloquies became a source of challenge and inspiration for important Victorian writers including Macaulay, Ruskin, Pugin and Carlyle.

Robert Southey (1774-1843) is the "missing link" of modern Romantic sudies. His influence on figures such as Byron, Wordsworth, Coleridge and Shelley was considerable, yet his later conservative self-representation distorted a career that started in the revolutionary decade of the 1790s. This edition of Southey's early poetry seeks to restore Southey the poet to his place at the centre of late 18th and early 19th century British literary culture. This collection critically reassesses Southey's epics and romances, and should be useful to those interested in Southey's literary relationships with his contemporaries.

LIVES THAT NEVER GROW OLD A radical new series -- edited by Richard Holmes -- that recovers the great classical tradition of English biography. Every book is a biographical masterpiece, still thrilling to read and vividly alive. This short, brilliant, action-packed biography appeared only eight years after Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar (a scene unforgettably described). It helped transform Nelson into the most popular wartime hero that Britain has ever placed on top of a column. It first gave currency to the proverbial stories of his courage and exhibitionism, from the 'blind eye' at Copenhagen, to 'Kiss me, Hardy' and the scandal of 'Beloved Emma' at Naples. It was written by the romantic poet and historian Robert Southey, a one-time radical who was converted to patriotism by Nelson's shining (though not 'untarnished') example.
