By Gregory Dart

This ebook re-opens the query of Rousseau's impact at the French Revolution and on English Romanticism, through interpreting the connection among his confessional writings and his political idea. Gregory Dart argues that by means of taking a look at the way Rousseau's writings have been mediated by way of the speeches and activities of the French Jacobin statesman Maximilien Robespierre, we will be able to achieve a clearer and extra concrete experience of the legacy he left to English writers. He indicates 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 progressive Terror.
