Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the numerous places where words and images combine or collide in Romantic literature and culture, such as in book production and illustration; in poetry, painting, and theories of the two as ‘sister arts’; in ekphrastic literary texts; in prints and annuals; and in exhibitions and galleries. The chapter explores the historical and artistic context for a range of dynamic experiments that raise conceptual questions about visual and verbal representation, and the nature of the connections between them. At the same time, it unsettles the apparently dual nature of a relationship that in fact often includes objects and places, or extends into other media and forms. Writers and artists discussed include Blake, Wordsworth, Beaumont, Gillray, and Turner.

Keywords: illustration, ekphrasis, prints, caricatures, annuals, guidebooks, exhibitions, literary galleries, poetry, painting
