And it is a formidable contribution. Mr. Markos has the remarkable ability to explain the subtle distinctions in Romantic world views in a gentle tone accessible to all readers. I have been reading a lot of Hindu poetry recently, and I was struck by Mr. Markos' insight that "what holds Wordsworth's mystical encounter within a Judeo-Christian, rather than Hindu-Buddhist, worldview is the poet's desire and determination to retain his own unique individuality rather than lose himself an amorphous One Soul." (137) In general, Mr. Markos draws your attention to new ideas the Romantics are introducing and explains how and why they are new. There are few authors in print today that put this amount of almost poetic care into their prose. Bravo!
When I finished this book I was hungry for more. I will have to pick up Mr. Markos' other works.
