Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I'm gratified you're keeping Burke's text on the Sublime available in an inexpensive edition. Thanks again for keeping it easily accessible. It is a major document not only for the post-modern and avant-garde discussion of the sublime, but also for gender theory."--Leonard L. Duroche, University of Minnesota
