Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book presents an incisive and resourceful intervention in current critical debates around Romantic culture, and Regier's consistently sophisticated and often illuminating readings repay careful attention as well as detailed critical engagement."
—Review 19

"Fracture and Fragmentation in British Romanticism is clear and persuasive, and provides a fresh way of thinking through the importance of Romanticism then and now."
—The Year's Work in English Studies

"Alexander Regier uses fracture and fragmentation as lenses through which Romanticism can be approached and analysed, so that the result is not only knowledge about Tomanticism but also knowledge about ourselves."
—The European Legacy

"His book argues forcefully for a central paradox in Romantic writing: its frequent articulation of fantasies of plenitude "that turn out to be broken in their origin or hide a fracture at their centre"(p.25)."
—Recent Studies in the Nineteenth Century
