Michael Roberts saw the romantic period as more the poetry of mountains not mountaineering but he tried to describe the processes of mountaineering, also seeing it as a metaphor for the political struggles of the age. Dr Penelope Bradshaw (University of Cumbria) gave this lecture at an event at The Literary & Philosophical Society (Lit & Phil) in Newcastle upon Tyne in May 2014. Titled 'Mountain Legacies' the event was organised by Dr Abbie Garrington (Newcastle University) and Dr Chris Donaldson (Lancaster University), to celebrate and discuss the literary history of mountaineering and climbing, through the sharing of research and public discussion.
