European Romantic Review , 2002, Vol. 13, pp. 77–93 PICTURESQUE FOSSILS, SUBLIME GEOLOGY? THE CRISIS OF AUTHORITY IN CHARLOTTE SMITH’S BEACHY HEAD Anne D. Wallace W E NOW find ourselves intrigued by the multivalance of the picturesque, by the ways its mixed aesthetic and political values serve a range of nuanced ideological positions. Tim Fulford’s Landscape, Liberty and Authority (1996) makes such a case at length, as does in a different way Stephen Copley and Peter Garside’s collection of essays, Politics of the Picturesque (1994). It is in the context of such work, which expands our discussion of the picturesque beyond the territory overtly claimed by picturesque theorists, that I turn to the relations among the picturesque, the sublime, and the speaker’s view of fossil sea-shells in Charlotte Smith’s Beachy Head.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
