By Gregory Dart

This ebook re-opens the query of Rousseau's effect at the French Revolution and on English Romanticism, by means of studying the connection among his confessional writings and his political thought. Gregory Dart argues that by way of taking a look at the way Rousseau's writings have been mediated by means of the speeches and activities of the French Jacobin statesman Maximilien Robespierre, we will achieve a clearer and extra concrete experience of the legacy he left to English writers. He exhibits how the writings of William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, William Wordsworth and William Hazlitt rehearse and replicate upon the Jacobin culture within the aftermath of the French innovative Terror.
