“Though at times weighed down by its courageous purpose, The Encyclopedia of Romantic Literatureis probably the best and most expansive review of British Romantic literature up to date, and will definitely prove a most useful resource to novices and scholars of Romanticism alike.”  (British Association for Romantic Studies' Bulletin, 1 December 2012)

“More titles are planned.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Lower-level undergradutes and above; general readers.”  (Choice, 1 September 2012)
