What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A first-rate collection of texts. This anthology adds something really new and important to what is currently available by the women who were part of the Romantic-era literary community in Britain' - Stephen C. Behrendt, University of Nebraska, USA

'This impressive anthology of women's literary criticism of the Romantic period definitely fills a gap and is to be welcomed. Mary A. Waters has expertly drawn together a coherent selection of reviews and essays from the compendious periodicals and reprint editions of the nineteenth century, and has certainly succeeded in making these accessible to undergraduates as well as researchers, through light but clear annotation and headnotes' - Caroline Franklin, Swansea University, UK
