"For complete and authoritative full–length texts by women Romantic poets look no further than Duncan Wu′s Romantic Women Poets. For centuries these poems have appeared to us in fragmented, unrecognizable shapes, if at all. Now we can read entire volumes that are rightly given places of honor in their completeness. Two complete volumes of Charlotte Smith′s work are included, making this anthology the single–best source for Smith′s poetry." Adriana Craciun
"For anyone interested in the literature of this date, and for those who are specifically interested in the development of women′s poetry, this is a most interesting collection of verse".Reference Reviews

Admirable anthology, a revelation

Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
Duncan Wu's taste in poetry is impeccable and his short biographies of these in many cases little-known authors are engagingly detailed and unpredictable. Better than the competition. But it's very, very expensive. So it's terribly important for university and public libraries to have this book.
