Editorial Reviews

“In the third edition of his groundbreaking Romanticism: AnAnthology, Duncan Wu has made a very good text even better. Forthose interested in stirring the familiar ingredients (Blake toByron) back into the rich soup of the times in which they dwelt,this anthology offers the best opportunity. Wu gives us the textsof familiar poems made strange--sometimes by being presented intheir first printed version, sometimes by the juxtaposition impliedby Wu's canny practice of the anthologizer's art.”
David Latane, Virginia Commonwealth University

“The Wu anthology, even more magnificent and indispensablein its Third Edition, is not simply the most useful or the mostlearned anthology of English Romantic poetry and thought; it is themost exciting. The flames of that excitement are fed by generouscords of minor poets and major essayists, carefully selected,intelligently bundled. But even the old-growth timber of the majorpoets burns with a brighter flame by being most provocativelyintroduced, brilliantly edited (especially Blake), and stackedagainst the kindling of the lesser lyricists. The combination ofearlier and revised versions of the same poem is dazzlinglyilluminating. One might say of Wu's Romanticism: An Anthology, incomparison to any other collection, what Wu himself says inintroducing the early use of the term “Romanticism:"Romanticism was 'organic' and 'plastic,' as against the'mechanical' tendencies of Classicism." Perhaps the anthologyitself cannot keep growing in subsequent editions without becomingunwieldy; but the enthusiasm it generates can grow without boundsand will prove both "organic"--well rooted in accurate,historically placed texts--and "plastic," ever subject toimaginative reshaping.”
Leslie Brisman, Yale University
“The fourth edition of Duncan Wu’s Romanticism: AnAnthology offers the perfect combination of breadth anddepth.  It contains a superb selection of literary texts withthought-provoking annotations and contextual materials that helpbring the Romantic era to life.”
Kim Wheatley, College of William and Mary

“No one familiar with Duncan Wu's impressive body ofRomantic period scholarship and criticism will be surprised at thehigh quality of Romanticism: An Anthology. I have chosen itfor my "British Romantic Poetry" as this text is superior to anyother available in its combination of essential canonical poetrywith an astute selection of other literature, including extensiverepresentation of women writers.”
Paul Betz, Georgetown University
