MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a massive, impressive collection that both challenges and guides us to see the literature of the period in its most vital, revolutionary context. By featuring and appropriately balancing the canonical and the obscure and much in between, this anthology reminds us that it is the diversity of the writers of the age that, more than anything else, stirs and astounds us." -- G. Kim Blank, University of Victoria

"This anthology provides an exciting, innovative, global approach to the study of what has been called the "Romantic" period. Poetry, prose, and criticism by canonical writers are presented along with texts by labouring-class women, journalists, slaves, and political thinkers from Britain, America, Canada, Africa, India, and Australia. Focusing on revolution and politics, editors D.L. MacDonald and Anne McWhir provide teachers and students with rich, historicized and intertextual contexts with which to study familiar and lesser-known authors. Intelligently conceived, containing a diverse range of works and a useful bibliography, The Broadview Anthology of Literature of the Revolutionary Period is a welcome addition to this often contested and fascinating field." -- Eleanor Ty, Wilfrid Laurier University
