Editorial Reviews

“Romantic Diasporas is a timely addition to the now substantial body of criticism concerned with the global context of Romanticism . . . Combining discussion of canonical works with less familiar writing, Romantic Diasporas is immensely valuable in turning the critical gaze to the issue of diaspora and its presence as a subject in the period . . . Romantic Diasporas will be welcomed by the scholars of Romantic period writing.”—Wordsworth Circle
