MEDIA REVIEWS

"In the 1820s and 30s Letitia Elizabeth Landon was the pre-eminent poetess of romantic love and, after the death of Byron, the most popular poet of her generation. Jerome McGann and Daniel Riess have assembled a useful and imaginative collection of Landon's major works. The result is an edition--complete with excellent historical and biographical introduction, reliable notes, and extensive bibliography--that will introduce students and scholars to this important, if neglected, nineteenth-century woman poet and help them understand why Elizabeth Barrett found Landon, with her 'raw bare powers, ' such a formidable predecessor. The Publication of Letitia Elizabeth Landon: Selected Writings is a cause for celebration." -- Linda Peterson, Yale University

"Like many Broadview Editions, this one is a model of its kind." -- Nineteenth-Century Literature
