New book by Stelzig on Robinson the life-writer

Distinguished Teaching Professor Gene Stelzig has added another monograph to his list of important scholarly publications in nineteenth-century literature. Though less well known than William Wordsworth, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Herman Hesse, or Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – subjects of previous books by Stelzig – Henry Crabb Robinson (1775-1867) is noteworthy for his reminiscences of key figures in the English romantic movement. Stelzig’s new book demonstrates that Robinson must also be taken seriously as a life writer. Henry Crabb Robinson in Germany: A Study in Nineteenth-Century Life Writing examines autobiographical writings by Robinson that remain largely in manuscript, together with letters and diaries.
