MEDIA REVIEWS

"Ildiko Csengei's Sympathy, Sensibility and the Literature of Feeling in the Eighteenth Century is a capacious study of a topic that has and will continue to have broad interest for eighteenth-century scholars. ... Sympathy, Sensibility and the Literature of Feeling is readable and engaging throughout and is supported both by extensive substantive notes and by a careful bibliography." (Ann Van Sant, Eighteenth-Century Fiction, Vol. 28 (3), Spring, 2016)

"Ildiko Csengei's Sympathy, Sensibility and the Literature of Feeling in the Eighteenth Century . . . addresses the overlap between philosophy, psychology, and medicine . . . Many of the authors covered by Csengei are familiar figures in the canons of sensibility - Shaftesbury, Hume, Smith, Richardson, Mackenzie, Rousseau - but careful yet imaginative readings offer new insights." - Years' Work in English Studies
