PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'This cityscape is both importantly represented in, and crucial locus for, Romantic period creativity, and this volume emphasises these facets in a way that has not before been undertaken.' BARS Bulletin and Review Review of the hardback: 'Romantic Metropolis as a whole compels us to re-examine the way our own conception of Romanticism has been invented by excluding everything but what Hazlitt and other 'major' Romantics upheld to forger the image of the 'serious' and solitary Romantic artist. This collection of enlightening essays constitutes a valuable and vitalising contribution to ever-expanding Romantic scholarship.' Studies in English Literature
