Reviews

"what marks out Fuller's book is the sheer breadth with which he reads 'Romanticism' across Europe ... Even as Fuller's book explores the workings of Romantic criticism in depth, it never loses sight of 'Romanticism' as a historical category, spanning roughly 1770-1850, and that sense of history is illuminating" - TLS

"Concisely written and argued, these 213 pages (excluding Chronology, Notes, Further Reading and Index), are written within the parameters of inventive expression and a most suave undertaking of gentle intellectuality." - David Marx Book Reviews
