MEDIA REVIEWS

'Bloody Romanticism refreshingly resituates Romanticism in the global theater of revolution, warfare and slavery from which it originally emerged. Through a series of compelling readings of key literary texts, it offers the reader a view of Romanticism in which uprisings, executions and massacres displace waterfalls, cliffsides and daffodils as the crucial reference points of the imaginary landscape at the end of the eighteenth century.' - Professor Saree Makdisi, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

'While the nature of the subject matter means that this book is never an entirely relaxing read, Bloody Romanticism demonstrates that the tropes of spectacular violence were woven deeply into the fabric of all modes of popular print culture...The discourse of these bloody vignettes helps to advance, if not to complete, our capacity to understand.' - Jonathon Shears, Review of English Studies

'Where Haywood excels is in his ability to draw out the textual and ideological complexitites of popular Romanticism.' - Philip Shaw, British Association for Romantic Studies

'Haywood's book covers an astonishing range of ground... opens up a new perspective on Romanticism.' - Scott Hess, European Romantic Review
