Professor McEathron specializes in British Romanticism. His interests include the canonical Romantic poets and essayists, especially Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, Lamb, and Hazlitt, as well as several non-canonical figures associated with the labouring-class poetic tradition. His edition English Labouring-Class Poetry, 1800-1830 (Pickering & Chatto, 2006) includes discussions of Robert Bloomfield, John Clare, James Hogg, and about twenty others. A recent essay on Bloomfield appeared in Robert Bloomfield: Lyric, Class, and the Romantic Canon (Bucknell University Press, 2006). His other publications include the book Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles: A Sourcebook (Routledge, 2005) and articles in Keats-Shelley Journal, Victorians Institute Journal, The Charles Lamb Bulletin, and Nineteenth-Century Literature.
