Editorial Reviews

`This is an excellent biography of mostly post-1970 criticism of romantic period writing. It is also a necessary one. As our understanding of romanticism (nad romanticisms) has undergone one revolution after another, the need for a reliable guide to the variety and volume of new work beingpublished has never been felt more keenly. this book fills that role: with 18 seperate chapters on diverse subjects ('Wordsworth', 'Clare', 'Romantic Gothic' and so on), each offering an assessment of current criticism and a full listing of relevant works, this book will be an indispensible tool foranyone working in the period.'Michael John Kooy, Romanticism on the Net 18 (May 2000)
