The E-BNR aims to build a comprehensive & unique cross-artform guide to
the British neo-Romantic tradition,
from 1880 to the present day.
While the British Romantics of 1789-1824 have spawned a vast industry of
publishers, conferences & tourism, the later neo-Romantic traditions
remain largely neglected. The E-BNR is aimed at bringing this hidden
tradition to light.

The E-BNR is launched in early beta format! Most articles are incomplete,
or missing entirely, or are in a draft state. Some will be adapted texts from
Wikipedia, being used to initially 'seed' the site. Site users should not rely on the
E-BNR until it reaches v1.0 and is out of beta.
