'The critics assembled here are close readers, attentive to metre, stanza form, figures of speech, but they are not nostalgic for the New Criticism of the 1950s and 1960s. If they are formalists, they are formalists of a new kind, less likely to celebrate the unifying power of art than the fragmented and the multitudinous, more likely to acknowledge Byron than Wordsworth, but just as ready to study a satiric print, or a poem by Ann Cristall. This volume sets a challenging new agenda for Romantic Studies.' - Richard Cronin, Professor of English Literature, University of Glasgow, UK
