From the Publisher...Faflak's book is one that must be reckoned with. The range is impressive ... Few critics write about literature and theory with equal authority. Few theorists read literature and find the nuances that Faflak continually does. That he is able to breathe new life into a method-psychoanalysis-that has had its day in Romantic criticism is alone a signal accomplishment.— The Wordsworth Circle
"...a book that ought to attract substantial interest, not simply amongst Romanticists interested in psychoanalysis, but also amongst those interested in the literary basis of psychoanalysis."— The Year's Work in English Studies
"...unquestionably a worthy and innovative contribution to a growing body of criticism."— Byron Journ
"...a splendid, thought-provoking book..."— CHOIC
"Other Romanticists have produced psychoanalytic readings of British Romantic texts, and it's almost a truism to say that Romanticism 'anticipates' the insights of psychoanalysis, but no critic has made such a thorough, persuasive case for seeing the poetry as anticipating the psychoanalytic scene itself. Faflak's bold and original argument about Romanticism's 'invention' of psychoanalysis will command much interest."— Karen Swann, Williams College"
