my favourite critic,
This review is from: Romantics, Rebels and Reactionaries: English Literature and its Background 1760-1830 (Paperback)
What a wonderfully witty and informative writer Butler is. Often with works of criticism, even though you know you're gaining various insights, the reading experience just isn;t much fun. With Butler you get both - a superb insight into the period, and a genuinely pleasurable reading experience. Her masterpiece is the Jane Austen book, but this is great fun, too.
