MEDIA REVIEWS

"Carol Bolton's careful situating of the Letters in the literary, social, political and religious context of Southey's time is a work of exemplary critical scholarship. It is also a welcome feat of rehabilitating a much undervalued text."

- Stuart Andrews, New Books Online


"Bolton's edition allows us to explore this complex and rewarding work with the help of a full editorial apparatus, richly detailed introduction, and extensive annotations. (...) This work is another outstanding product of the ongoing revival in Southey studies, to which Bolton has already made several important editorial and critical contributions. Hers is set to be the edition of Southey's Letters for the foreseeable future. Bolton's abundant endnotes provide an indispensable tool for navigating this multifaceted work."

- Diego Saglia, Universita di Parma
