"Making the English Canon is not simply a monograph on eighteenth-century literary aesthetics, it is a singularly powerful and authoritative contribution to perhaps the most important discussion going on in the literary humanities today." Terry Castle, Stanford University
"The scope of this impressive first book is narrower than its title suggests...It accomplishes much, primarily by paying intelligent attention to a relatively neglected and pivotal twenty-year period in English criticism and by enganging important questions thoughtfully. Kramnick has begun to map some significant critical networks and fault lines in the eighteenth century. He does so with a combination of theoretical sophistication and investment that bodes well for his further explorations." Journal of English and Germanic Philology
"Kramnick's book addresses worthwhile questions and challenging problems...The footnote citations constitute an extraordinarily rich and immensely convenient compendium of recent secondary materials." The Age of Johnson: A Scholarly Annual
