“A quivering quick-sand”: romantic Solway aesthetics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article explores four literary encounters with the Solway Firth in the Romantic period. It draws on theories of place in anthropology and geography and claims that these literary texts develop distinctive formal techniques that allow us to rethink environmental relations. The Solway's characteristic mobility produces texts that are themselves disconcertingly mobile.
