Description : Romanticism and Blackwood's Magazine is inspired by the ongoing critical fascination with Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, and the burgeoning recognition of its centrality to the Romantic age. Though the magazine itself was published continuously for well over a century and a half, this volume concentrates specifically on those years when William Blackwood was at the helm, beginning with his founding of the magazine in 1817 and closing with his death in 1834. These were the years when, as Samuel Taylor Coleridge put it in 1832, Blackwood's reigned as "an unprecedented Phenomenon in the world of letters." The magazine placed itself at the centre of the emerging mass media, commented decisively on all the major political and cultural issues that shaped the Romantic movement, and published some of the leading writers of the day, including Coleridge, Thomas De Quincey, John Galt, Felicia Hemans, James Hogg, Walter Scott, and Mary Shelley.

Description : Excerpt from Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. 84: July December, 1858 It was to the other element, shown in idle luxury and the pride of wealth, that Spain, at a time when she seemed striding onward to European dominion, owed her fall. With thankfulness we feel that from neither of these sources of ruin has the faintest cloud yet darkened the lustre of British prosperity. Wherever our sword has been drawn, it has been that of the protector and the liberator, not of the oppressor and enslaver - Pacisque imponere morem, Parcere subjectis et debellaresuperbos. To no chapters in the proud history of our battles can we point with more confidence for the vindication of this truth, than to those two last Indian wars, which, to a heedless observer, judging of them by analogy with the acts of other powers, might be deemed to illustrate the spirit of aggression. What was the chief result of the campaign on the Sutlej, but the salvation of the submissive people of Hindostan from the tyrannous rule of a savage soldiery? Seventy thousand strong, with arms and money, and the powerful discipline which old Runjeet Singh had communicated to them, they thought they might take India and keep it to themselves. The bloody reign of anarchy and extirpation which such an oligarchy would have held had they been successful, can be conceived only from the scenes which then took place at Lahore, and those which befell at Delhi and Cawnpore the other day. But for that protracted list of bloody battles, of which Ferozeshah, Aliwal, Sobraon, and Chillianwallah are still familiar to us, the project would have succeeded. And in the last and most desperate of our trials, who were the enemies? Not the docile people of the land - for they remained true even during the temporary paralysis of the strong protecting hand but a pampered soldiery, trained to mimic our own supreme warlike tactics, and idly dreaming that the Empire which they thought the held for us, they might take an hold for themselves. No: from the we are hereafter to stand or to fall, we must for ever be an example to the world, as the first nation that has wielded its power, not in selfishness or cruelty, but in beneficence. Nor have our late terrible trials passed away without assuring us that we are free from all symptoms of moral decay. When the war with Russia began, it was felt that we were going forth against along-cultivated warlike power - "a man of war from his youth;" and we assured ourselves with justice that the resources accumulated by a long career of peaceful progress would give the material elements of warlike strength to us much more abundantly than the development of purely military power could impart them to our enemy. The wealth accumulated by our agriculture, manufactures, and commerce, would afford inexhaustible pecuniary resources; our shipping would supply a navy or transport our troops; the mechanical skill, cultivated for peaceful purposes, would instantly be turned to the creation of destructive engines. All this was exultingly feAbout the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com

Description : Excerpt from Blackwoods' Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. 37: January-June, 1835 The memory of great men is the noblest inheritance of their country. All other distinctions are perishable. A few centuries have covered the most intellectual regions of the world with the deepest barbarism. National valour, the spirit of na tional sacrifice, the noble and natu ral pride of public supremacy, all that was great invthe nature, the ambition, and the power of a na tion, is exchanged for debility and decay, or survives but in the form of some faint memorial, mutilated sculptures round the tomb where the dead glory of the people slumb ers. But the character of her eminent minds is unassailable by the process that humiliates the strength and dignity of the nation. Their ordeal is past; they have reached the point at which fame is inevitably their own. In passing to the grave, they have secured the honours, which to all the living must he still liable to the common chances of things. The nation may go down, and be submerged in the common tide of human casualty. But their fame stands up, like the mountain to s in the deluge, the last retreat O the national hope and virtue, the first point from which they reissue to possess and restore the land.

We were shewn up stairs to t e drawing-rooms. They were very well, but neither so grand nor so great as I expected. As for the com pany, it was a suffocating crowd of fat elderly gentlewomen, and misses that stood in need of all the charms of their fortunes. One thing I could notice for the press was so great, little could be seen - it was, that the old ladies wore rouge. The white satin sleeve of my dress was entirely ruined by coming in contact with a little, round, dumpling duchess's cheek - as vulgar a body as could well be. She seemed to me to have spent all her days be hind a counter smirking thankfulness to bawbee customers. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Excerpt from Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, Vol. 17: January-June, 1825 Of course, a biographer, to do full justice to the fame of Burke, should be able to sketch, distinctly and vividly, the effects which his speeches and writings produced, both to his own country and to Europe - be should be able to draw the line between the tri umphs of his hero and those of Pitt -he should be able to pourtray the mighty influence and prodigious er rors, follies, and guilt, of Fox and the Whigs - he should be able to paint the tretmndous and appalling army of ene mies, difficulties, and sorrows, which Burke had toenconnterwhen he gained the most glorious of his victorit s, and which would have crushed and de stroyed any spirit but his own - and he should be able to cope with, not ml the delusions, but the prejudices an! The wickedness of parties. He should possess a mind equally daunt less and impartial - determined to be alike just and uns ring, and to deal as liberally in con emnation as panc gyric - aware that, as it had espoused the cause of one whom almost all con spired to wrong, it could only do jus tice to him by treating every enemy with due severity.

Description : In late 1804, William Blackwood established a small publishing and bookselling firm in Edinburgh. Over the next 175 years, William Blackwood & Sons became one of the leading publishers in Britain, enjoying both local and international success. Early on it championed the works of Scottish writers, and later gained acclaim as the publisher of G.W. Steevens, George Eliot, Charles Whibley, and Joseph Conrad. Its political influence was also widespread; in 1817 it founded the monthly Blackwood's Magazine, which featured literary, critical, political, and journalistic commentary and analysis, and was a powerful force in British conservative politics. Two hundred years after the founding of this significant influence on British literary, political, and social history, this collection of essays reappraises the place of the Blackwood firm and its magazine in literary and print culture history. Editor David Finkelstein brings together an array of eminent scholars and critics from the US, Canada, Scandinavia, and the UK to examine Blackwoods from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives. The resulting collection covers an impressive range of subject areas, including Romantic and Victorian literature, print culture, media history, and New Journalism.

Description : "Hogg left a written record of three of his many journeys to the Highlands, those of 1802, 1803 and 1804, and in Highland Journeys he offers a thoughtful and deeply-felt response to the Highland Clearances. He gives vivid pictures of his experiences, including a narrow escape from a Navy press-gang, and a Sacrament day with one minister preaching in English and another in Gaelic. Hogg also explains aspects of Gaelic culture such as the waulking songs, and he describes the trade in kelp, lucrative to the landowners but back-breaking and ill-paid for the workers. Highland Journeys makes a refreshing contribution to our understanding of early nineteenth-century travel writing"--Publisher description.
