AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Cousins argues that Field's poetry should be read as an expression of the impossibility of imposing a Wordsworthian Romantic view on the Antipodes. Because Field cannot impose a Wordsworthian vision of nature on Australia, he replaces it with a ludic Romanticism that produces a vision of nature that is "paradoxical or hybrid".
