"By combining a sensitive reading of the novels with an unblinking look at the fact of their English readership, Ferris adds significantly to our understanding of the genre."
"Ferris's study represents an important contribution to scholarship on Ireland and 'the Irish question' in Britain's Romantic period. It is an invaluable resource for literary critics and historians, for Romanticistsand for Canadianists and comparatists, like this reviewer, whose thinking hte literary history of nationalism has been strengthened by Ferris's scholarship on the national tale." - Andrea Cabajsky, Canadian Journal of Irish Studies
