It investigates topics from slavery to tropical disease, religion and commodity production, in a wide range of writers from Edmund Burke to Hannah More, William Blake to Phyllis Wheatley, Olaudah Equiano to Mary Shelley, Thomas Clarkson to Lord Byron. Together, the essays constitute a broad assessment of Romanticisms engagement with India, Africa, the West Indies, South America and the Middle East.
