Editorial Reviews

"Richard Cronin’s exceptionally fine book carries out just what its title promises—reading. The pleasure of his adroit, meticulously imaginative insights into verbal and metrical effects is constant… [O]ne of the best general readings of Victorian poetry in the last ten years."  (Victorian Studies, 1 April 2013)

"It is a definite strength of Cronin’s approach that his own book’s attempt to recover ways of appreciating and understanding Victorian poetry overlaps with the techniques Victorian poets themselves used to address and forestall their anxieties about the meaning and value of their work . . . . To repeat the question, however, proves to be a good way of tuning in to the distinctive music of the Victorian poetry."  (The Tennyson Society, 1 December 2012)
