From Gothic to Romantic: Thomas Chatterton's Bristol

Alistair Heys
Redcliffe, 2005 - 144 páginas
Even 235 years after his supposed death by suicide, Bristol s boy-poet Thomas Chatterton remains a fascinating and controversial figure. This challenging collection of eight essays questions long-held assumptions about Chatterton's life and offers new insights into the young poet's influence on English art and literature. Architectural historian Timothy Mowl argues that, rather than a proto-Romantic, Chatterton was more a Rococo poet living among the eclectic furore of a brash Rococo city. Art historian Michael Liversidge assesses how the Chatterton myth encouraged and influenced artistic depictions of St Mary Redcliffe church by artists such as Girtin,Turner and Varley.
