MEDIA REVIEWS

"Judith Thompson's John Thelwall: Selected Poetry and Poetics amounts to a major accomplishment, at once accelerating the revival of Thelwall, and providing a much needed resource for work and pleasure in Romantic era studies. It is a treasure-house curated by expert archival scholarship, editorial savvy, and critical insight. With a smartly devised introduction, Thompson presents poet Thelwall (famously brave political activist) in the range and originality of the genres he exercised and transformed: pastoral and peripatetic, comic ballads, satires and seditious allegories, sonnets routine and innovative, odes (public and Pindaric), conversation poems, effusions, love songs, epic and autobiography, and essays on poetic principles." - Susan J. Wolfson, Professor of English, Princeton University, USA

"This superb edition contains selections from the entire range of Thelwall's poetry, including previously unpublished work, together with extracts from his critical writing. Organized by genre, Thelwall's own preferred method, the volume reveals a daringly experimental poet-theorist whose contribution to the Romantic literary revolution can now be explored by modern readers for the first time. Thompson, the leading interpreter of his poetry and discoverer of the Derby Manuscript which has transformed Thelwall studies, brings her expertise to bear through skillful editing and annotation and an insightful critical introduction which takes readers to the heart of Thelwall's poetic project." - David Duff, Professor of Language and Literature, University of Aberdeen, Scotland
