Editorial Reviews

"The Poetry of Mary Robinson: Form and Fame presents not only the first full-length assessment of her poetry and poetics, but also a new authoritative account of her later career . . . In addition to providing an incisive commentary on Robinson's formal and stylistic practices, the book also offers a thorough assessment of the social circles, publishing networks, and professional affiliations that determined the development of her poetic identity." - The Year's Work in English Studies
