Editorial Reviews

"Romanticism and Pleasure offers a useful collection of essays that, taking an interdisciplinary approach to an often neglected topic, show how pervasive the discourse of pleasure was in the Romantic period. Some essays particularly stand out in that they reveal how a serious approach to pleasure can help us understand some well-known but little-examined or understood features of Romantic literature." - European Romantic Review
