Taking into account recent developments in historical and ecological criticism, and incorporating fresh research into poetry and politics in the 1790s, the second edition of "The Politics of Nature" enlarges and updates Nicholas Roe's acclaimed study of Romanticism. Hitherto marginal figures are restored to prominence, and there is new material on William Wordsworth's radical years.

'Nicholas Roe, in a nuanced and thoughtful engagement with the ideas of New Historicism, shows how the most interesting meanings of Romantic texts can be constructed by paying particular attention to what is on the surface rather than what might be concealed in depths that have to be made to speak...Few books deserve a second edition, but Nicholas Roe's The Politics of Nature is one of them.' - Michael Scrivener, Wayne State University 'Few books deserve a second edition, but Nichoas Roe's The Politics of Nature is one of them...The second edition of this work remind us of how persuasive and strongly argued The Politics of Nature is...The strength of Roe's study is engaging not ghosts and lacunae but public actions and texts that seem to mean what they say...bring[s] into being interesting readings of important works by remaining within the realm of the visible.' - Michael Scrivener, Wayne State University 'In this new, expanded edition, Roe makes a convincing case for the close relationship between revolutionary science and politics in romanticism.' - P D Smith, The Guardian
