About

In this illustrated talk, award-winning historian and biographer Richard Holmes gives a lively account of the extraordinary late 18th-century revolution in the physical sciences – notably in the fields of astronomy, chemistry, geographical exploration and aerostation (ballooning !) – and traces their surprising metaphysical impact on the Romantic writers of the day, including Coleridge, Mary Shelley, John Keats and Lord Byron.
