“Richard Cronin’s exceptionally fine book carriesout just what its title promises—reading. The pleasure of hisadroit, meticulously imaginative insights into verbal and metricaleffects is constant… [O]ne of the best general readings ofVictorian poetry in the last ten years.” (VictorianStudies, 1 April 2013)
“It is a definite strength of Cronin’s approachthat his own book’s attempt to recover ways of appreciatingand understanding Victorian poetry overlaps with the techniquesVictorian poets themselves used to address and forestall theiranxieties about the meaning and value of their work . . . . Torepeat the question, however, proves to be a good way of tuning into the distinctive music of the Victorian poetry.” (The Tennyson Society, 1 December 2012)
