MEDIA REVIEWS

"This substantial collection ... brings together fifteen case studies of literary commemoration to produce the first comparative study of literary centenaries during the time of the `centenary fever' in 19th century Europe. ... Bringing together a great deal of recent research and opening up lines for further inquiry, Commemorating Writers in Nineteenth-Century Europe is, in every sense, a productive volume." (Ina Ferris, Arcadia, Vol. 50 (2), 2015)
